First Draft

My random smile melted like summer ice cream 

When I woke up from a lucid dream 

The calendar said it was 2019 

I'm coming apart at the seams 

Dodging my fate

Dodging the cheval glass 

I stand 

Like a swooning Bambi

Now I've switched on the lamp 

I'm ready to take on the day

Usually I'm a nocturnal being 

But today is different, today's different

I've poured a cup of coffee, acknowledged reality

Accepted the truth 

No matter what I do I'll never win 

The damage has been done

I've been seduced by the darkness

It sure ain't a passing phase 

I'm beyond the pale

Beyond the veil.
