You’re feeling happy today?
“Well, let me fix that”, my mind must say.
“Bring it to her attention,
the anger-Don’t forget to mention
The Sleight of the world, at whole.
Hah! How could her mind have been so bold?”
“Try to fight it!” her heart tells her
“Don’t let the day get caught in the burr
of heartache – so easy to feel.”
Some days she asks herself, “is this real?”
“But not today!” she says silently,
The sun shines down bright and violently.
The war can subside – at least for now
She sits, watching the passerby’s and clouds
wondering if this feeling can stay
while knowing she can barely keep it at bay.
The knowledge of that seems so much to bare
Soon the things she sits and stares at disappear
She is wracked by the impending sadness
The happiness she felt soon leaves- as if weightless.
Her mind smiles at it’s own success
as she stoops deeper into her depress.
Life will not be the same, she accepts
The happy feeling now at the ocean depths.
