Day by Day

When the day rolls over

Folding inwards before reaching out

Crystals of trembling anxiety dance in our eyes

When the day rolls over

I sing with my ears

I dance with my eyes

You don’t know me well enough

To know that when I crumble

I feel it in my heart

I feel it in my stomach

I feel pain comfortably

So I accept everything that rolls over me

Shadows in the mirror

Dancers on the screen

Singers on the stage

When the day rolls into a new one

My eyes still tremble open

Holding little light

Holding less serenity
