Every Day


Every day we will try to restart,

we stumble but I hope we know where to stand.

I don’t want to give you away.


Every day I spend all of my


and I’m left with a whole lot of


but this is the good lonely…

every day we don’t know where to step

but we keep walking.


I have wrapped you in twilight

but every day you pull off another corner,

drenched in daylight,

facing the sun

when it’s only worth slipping

to find our footing again.
