Where Did Wednesday Go?
I lost Wednesday along the way to Friday.
Somehow it eluded me as if it ran away.
Misplaced among the hours
of incandescent thought,
a time traveler’s lament.
It always astonishes me
how whole days can disappear,
vanishing into oblivion along with
items from last week’s grocery list,
and clouded memories of the past.
Do you know the way to Monday,
or is that lost as well?
Missing days hiding in the shadows
of unknown tomorrows,
and forgotten yesterdays,
as I continue to struggle forward
through another week.
