Monday was not a good day

and we don’t have great hopes for Tuesday, to be honest

Melancholy

Such a pretty name

Mellifluous and soft

A kitten that climbs on your shoulder and nips your ear to draw blood

A companion who keeps you company when you feel alone

Despair

Leaps on you from the ceiling

Sinks its claws in your aching back

Drives its fangs into your tired neck as you

Howl

So echoes bounce into the corners of the empty house

Howl

While the floor hits your shoulders

Howl

While you miss her so much

Howl

So much to do

Howl

So much needs done

Howl

Because it’s not fair it’s not fair it’s not fair

Howl into the silence


It’s alright

She needs to be where she is

It’s alright

You’ll see her tomorrow morning

It’s alright

Things need done here

It’s alright

You know she loves you always will

It’s alright

Things will be better

Things will be better

Things. Will. Be. Better.
