Joy is my woe
A sickness that won’t let go
Every day I spend laughing
Every smile, high on slacking
I’m keeping score for what I owe
To the darkness for when it unfolds
Amidst hushed slumber all’s pacific
My guilty ocean’s got me asphyxic
Salted pathways carve the sheets
Numb from holding i release
If only joy would let go of me
Maybe then I’d be happy?
Write a poem about the greatest joy or greatest sorrow in your life right now.
