Grey Believer


I woke up a grey believer
I felt her there but I could not see her
My head was swollen and swimming with doubt
I couldn’t get out
I rolled to greet her and I held my hand out
I couldn’t get out, I couldn’t get out

I found my day worn and waiting
The edges frayed and the colors fading
I felt so anxious and I wanted to shout
I couldn’t get out
I felt afraid but I kept it within
She helped me out, she helped me begin

Yellow eyes of morning leave me where I lie
I know the day is dawning but I cannot comply
I can not comply, no I, I can not comply

I couldn’t get out
She let me out
Yellow eyes….
