[ happiness ]

today, i came home with

my happiness a little bit

dirty.

i found a stain of insult.

oh, better scrub that out

clean.

also a small hole of hurt.

i need to patch that up

perfectly.

it reeks of my dry tears.

wash it, make it a pleasing

scent.

today, i took off happiness.

i sat alone in my sadness,

naked.

tomorrow i will put on

happiness and i will smile,

again.
