Not TODAY

from DEEP BREATHS, by Leo Shelton
 


I want to believe…


That there’s no place special


That I haven’t been


And that there’s no time worth having


No breath worth breathing


That doesn’t contain your DNA


 


 


I want to hope…


Those days without me


And days without you


Don’t turn pages of the calendar


Don’t become moments


Or seconds,


Or minutes


Or complete days….


 


 


I want to wish


For a complete replay of time


When birds and chirps


Echo in time


And ecstasy highs


Remain sublime


Even after you’ve walked away


 


 


I want to know


That waking up


Looking up


Reaching up


And falling asleep


Is all a part of the day?


And the way


That we love


 


 


But what I believed


And hoped,


And wished,


And the essence of what I knew,


Has passed like the season


With convoluted reasons


Into what is


And IS not


Your way…


Not for me


Not for another


Not TODAY!
