Happiness Does Not Live Here

2 Sep

Happiness does not live here
It has been cast away
Too much pain and suffering
Too many cold rainy days

May the sun set forever
Hold down the rising moon
Blow out the shining stars
Let the heart sing its sad tune

Quiet the talk of bliss
Bite the helpful tongue
Silence the affirmations
Allow it all to come undone

Purpose continues to be uncertain
A reason to go on remains amiss
Peculiar comfort comes from knowing
Death is always waiting with a kiss
