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?

Day 3

Write a poem about the greatest joy or greatest sorrow in your life right now.
