Daily Prompt:  Simmer

Woke up this morning a little dimmer

Last night chances became a bit slimmer

My life seems to have lost its shimmer

Thought things were over, but continue to simmer

Stars aren’t so bright, sun not so warm

Things not back to the regular norm

Clouds gather causing a threat

I’m not outside but my face is wet

Disappointment came to call

Problems I can’t forget at all

Life just never seems to reign

So many things I cannot change

I can ask why over and again

The cup is full, I’ve said “when”

But it just keeps coming, no matter what

Twists and turns, stirring your gut

Up and then down and around again

Didn’t you hear me?  I said, “when!”
