Why did you lie/I would’ve understood

If I said tomorrow, you’d ask for today
But I never did understand partial wholes
So that’s already a given and
The sun sets and gives new heatwaves
To other days
And I don’t know why
There’s not enough for everyone
Why are our days not the same
Why can I not smile with you in my presence
Why is it so damn hard to get out of bed
I never could work without giving it my all
So If i dont think i can finish
I simply won’t start
So if today will not work for you
I will lay in bed and cry
But when tomorrow comes
I will force myself to crawl out
And paint false dignity on my face
Knowing once again, you will not show up

  1. Kaylen, this is so well written. I was overwhelmed with the raw emotions and power of your words. There is a sadness, a melancholic tone, that reverberates through out. And you close with a certain strength and indignance that pushes back against the sadness. A beautiful composition, young lady!
