Today was a hard day,
Filled with pearly smiles and laugh lines,
Swollen eyes and salty kisses, that I wished would never end.
To wipe tears away would admit defeat, I want to cry,
A deep part wants you to cry,
But when wishes come true a pit grows deeper, and emotions are raw.
I woke knowing I would no longer be tangled up in your skin,
Emotionally awake and unready for the day,
But time is a villain, and time is all we have, a ticking time-bomb.
Outside, a storm, wind becomes apparent, growing stronger inside and out,
I look up to the dusky blue in your face, and you see all of me and my pain,
Fighting, yet failing as the flood begins.
Today I carry the pain, of a true love and a true goodbye,
But this love shall overrule pain as our love conquers all,
Kissing a goodbye, flipping a goodbye, mouthing a goodbye.
It may be goodbye for now, but you're still here with me until we reunite, and our day will once again begin with salty kisses and pearly smiles.
