Another personal poem about being a goose (foolish person) when you think you can't find happiness. Hope you enjoy. :) <3

finding my happy place

I think of it and there's a prickling

I think of it and there's a prickling like lightning touching my ribs--

I think of it and there's a prickling like lightning touching my ribs-- I'm speaking about the illusion

I think of it and there's a prickling like lightning touching my ribs-- I'm speaking about the illusion of happiness.

When I look out the window,

When I look out the window, I see the sky.

When I look out the window, I see the sky. A grey sky

When I look out the window, I see the sky. A grey sky with people chasing

When I look out the window, I see the sky. A grey sky with people chasing balloons bursting hope

When I look out the window, I see the sky. A grey sky with people chasing balloons bursting hope that are torn away.

It's an endless smudge,

It's an endless smudge, string drawing across

It's an endless smudge, string drawing across marks each failed attempt;

It's an endless smudge, string drawing across marks each failed attempt; one,

It's an endless smudge, string drawing across marks each failed attempt; one, two,

It's an endless smudge, string drawing across marks each failed attempt; one, two, there's another one gone.

There are no lights in my sky,

There are no lights in my sky, only streaks,

There are no lights in my sky, only streaks, like the stars tried to run away

There are no lights in my sky, only streaks, like the stars tried to run away but were dragged back

by the scruff of their necks

by the scruff of their necks and had their collars folded,

by the scruff of their necks and had their collars folded, ties straightened and smiles bent.

Reader, is it worth it?

Reader, is it worth it? I watch from above, they chase

Reader, is it worth it? I watch from above, they chase rainbows and I,

Reader, is it worth it? I watch from above, they chase rainbows and I, hurricanes.

The clock has no sympathy

The clock has no sympathy for those who watch their step,

The clock has no sympathy for those who watch their step, look at the wind for direction

The clock has no sympathy for those who watch their step, look at the wind for direction and fly away to find a rainbow.

But happiness,

But happiness, something about it

But happiness, something about it lights my bones on fire,

But happiness, something about it lights my bones on fire, bursts all my balloons

But happiness, something about it lights my bones on fire, bursts all my balloons and sews a parachute in its place.

I promise, one day,

I promise, one day, that when the sky

I promise, one day, that when the sky drinks up a tonic of colour,

I promise, one day, that when the sky drinks up a tonic of colour, I'll down one too.

I promise, one day, that when the sky drinks up a tonic of colour, I'll down one too. I'll face

I promise, one day, that when the sky drinks up a tonic of colour, I'll down one too. I'll face the blue and it'll exhale

I promise, one day, that when the sky drinks up a tonic of colour, I'll down one too. I'll face the blue and it'll exhale and blow me away

and I'll use up

and I'll use up every

and I'll use up every single

and I'll use up every single colour

and I'll use up every single colour in the worlds I see

and I'll use up every single colour in the worlds I see trying to draw

my happy place.
