It wasn’t a radiant day, it wasn’t a star-lit night,
it wasn’t a summer sun, it wasn’t a winter light.
It was just a day. A day, much like today,
where the rancid weight of our rotten job
rolled over my toes for the fourth time in a week.
There was no oak tree, nor one ripe with peach,
no simple sunset, nor calm, sandswept beach.
It was just a day, much like today,
where grey-white clouds blotched blue skies.
And yet, in you, I found a cliché dream
hidden like rain in those sky blue eyes.
A dream of diamond ringlets, crested with rubies and gold,
where the plunder of power was too weak to take hold.
But that was just a day, a day just like today,
that wasn’t like to come again
So Carpe Diem; I seized the day.
