Some Days

Some days I blindly chase foolish dreams
cling tightly to even the most useless things
but not today
but not today

Some days I wish I could be young again
to change so many things I did back then
but not today
but not today

Some days I love you more than each breath I take
but…
then again I guess some things will never change

Some days 
I want to climb 
on the highest skyscraper 
and scream into the sky
until my lungs hurt. 

Some days 
I want to run
as fast and 
as far
as I humanly can. 

Some days 
I want to stay 
under the covers 
in my bed 
all day. 

Some days
I don’t want 
any interaction
with another
human being.

Some days
I feel like 
buying a train ticket
and driving far away
without telling anyone. 

On those days, 
you keep me grounded,
you keep me still, 
you keep me calm. 

You keep me here.

—  Poetic Moon Child (Some days)
