Poem - Happiness Guessed

The poem “Happiness Guessed” is about happiness and depression, and the inevitability of sadness if joy is not pursued.


Happiness Guessed

Happiness guessed is fantasy
accounting for the scary dreams
worry spawns more of the same
damning all that play the game

failure wrapped without regard
for the falls beyond the edge
imagined in full relief
against the bones still complete

without a break even though
phantom pains take control
reducing those who abide
with the troubles of the mind

sadness thought to carry on
clouds spun into the storm
contrasted with the coming balm
this asks too much from the now.
