Happiness is leaving me:
I got up the other day and thought I felt it but that was only
I took a walk out on the empty streets
left you behind
then I began to feel a lightness, release:
Happiness is leaving you.

Written for dVerse Quadrille Monday, hosted by Lillian, who has asked us to include some form of the word ‘happy’ in our 44-word poem. Lillian’s poem, ‘Perky Patty‘ made me think of Peppermint Patty in Peanuts and the song ‘Happiness.’ I changed the lyrics a bit! Thank you Lillian twice over, for both the prompt and the inspiration 🙂
