67. Unattainable moodiness on a bright day

the sun came up shining today, even though I didn’t want it to.
I kept my windows shut and pulled the blanket over my eyes, but the warm scent of coffee drifted in anyway.
my neightbours’ children were playing noisily — some new toy had caught their attention, much to their mother’s amusement,
but not mine.
I just wanted the world to stop revolving, and let me off this ride.
but it wasn’t going to happen.
the world continued spinning, taking me on a round trip into tomorrow.
somewhere the sun was still shining, and it wasn’t bothered about self-pity or worse.
the world just has a job to do.

Daily prompt: Moody
