POEM| When Time Didn’t Matter

I long for the days
when everyday felt the same
and it was okay
because time didn’t matter

I long for the days
when the sight of the sun
only meant it was daytime
and nothing more

I long for the days
I never kept count
of what day of the week it was
and when the weekend would arrive


I long for the days
I wasn’t bothered
if I spent a day doing nothing
because time didn’t matter
