Day 311: Poem

Posted by annagrace under Days 301-365

Sometimes I like to write poems… it has been a really long time since I have written one, so I decided to give one a shot today! I’m not very happy with it, but I decided to post it anyways. There’s nothing interesting about it, I don’t think, and it’s probably a bit too personal for me to be broadasting all over the internet, but whatever. So read it or don’t. This post is definitely one of those that is more for me than anyone else… sort of stream of conciousness emotions playing out. Think of it as a work in progress…

Cliche Happiness

You stand there waiting,
Sweaty palms, heart racing,
All of those cliche things, now true.
Excitement and dread balled together,
Into a twisted, real life dream.
“Happiness is possible,”
You say to yourself,
But the words seem fake in this moment.
Positivity was never your forte.
Why get your hopes up,
Just to have them stomped on,
Like an intruding cockroach?
And yet you still hope,
Because you desire happiness,
More than anything.
And maybe,
By some miracle,
Happiness can be brought to you,
By this new person,
Walking towards you.
So you stand there,
Trying not to look over-eager,
Waiting,
And hoping,
For him to make you happy.
You smile and greet him…
Now what?
