Life Around The Corner

Choosing Life and Operating Happiness

Jolly Melancholy

When things seem to be doing okay
The sadness hits me.
It creeps slowly,
Invades me through the gap between my shoulder blades,
Spreads towards my neck,
And before I know it
Sadness chokes me from within.
Daily tasks sadden me.
Their existence discourages me.
Having to deal with reality
Is sometimes more than I can bare.
It accentuates my loneliness,
My hardships never shared.
How can “A Day” bring such melancholy?
How can this woman become more jolly?
Outside the sun shines
And I am inside writing these lines.
I don’t want to feel so single
And I hate going out to mingle.
I want my mind to be read,
I want my heart to be heard:
Grab my hand,
Hug me,
hold my head,
So I can deal with all the conflicts
that are coming ahead.
