What a silly concept.
A day prior to today,
Yet displaced by something even worse

The present.

Yesterday is filled with missed opportunities
Or alternative plots that can be commemorated with

“What if”

Yesterday can be remembered as
“Dodging disaster”
Yet a time sullied with regret
“It feels like only yesterday”

What a way to describe the “once upon a time” fairytale
A long time agon in a love story oh so far away

We all think of the joy
Expectant in a day many yesterday’s ago
Yesterday came veiled as a wonderful light
As a masquerade of the greatest tragedy in loves-lore

It feels like yesterday that today
Was boasted as great

But the stories of yesterday are the fairytales of today
