A Day To Remember

by ianblackpoet

 

Today is any other day, by any other means.

A time, a place, a moment. A world, a passerby.

Today is any other day, on any other lips.

Define it by the spitting rain, or dusky, ashen sky.

 

Today is any other day, to any other mind.

A gaze, a breath, an ember. A new-impassioned high.

The walk along the riverside. The sun, obscured by clouds.

The shadow-fire, the sea of blue, the moon within your eye.

 

Today is any other day, in any other heart.

The young adults, the playful smile, the melancholic sigh.

The swelling flame, conflicted. The hunger of desire.

The final chance, the would-be kiss, the bittersweet goodbye.

 

Today is any other day, to any other man.

Void of love or poetry. A life, a time, mundane.

But I am no one other, and this is mine alone.

My life. My heart. My would-be-kiss. Today, I fall for you.
