Pay the price for happiness that's long overdue
with tears that hide behind your clear irises.
Pluck it out like feathers from a bird
and reveal it to the cascading world.
Mourn the day that you lose your beliefs
and your mind refuses to think anymore.
Catch the junkyard smiles people give you
when they don't know how to help.
Orchard flavor to settle you today
in the waking of hundreds of perplexed sunflowers.
Small moments that last forever
Etched into the sincerity of your mind.
