Masked Emotions

The masks of two emotions,
the happy and the sad have
reflected the many moods I feel
in which I’m never glad.
The smiling side of my soul,
the side you seldom see springs
forth on only good days when
hope revives in me.
When the birds are singing
and God seems to exist and I
dare to dream that life could be
a blissful, healthy myth.
That smiling side ne’er lasts
long, for NO more than a day;
those clouds of dark and dreariness
come again to stay.
Reality befalls me and tormented
muses and ill I lay alone and beaten
by the evil force nearby, which
is the disease I cannot conquer;
it strives for me to die.

  8. I love the line “The smiling side of my soul,
    the side you seldom see springs
    forth on only good days when
    hope revives in me.”

  13. I loved this. There was such a tender sadness about it. No, it doesn’t seem like happiness stays around very long before sadness shows his face again.
