The Tragedy of Happiness

by Kitty Cat Lady   Feb 4, 2019

How sad that I crave the drama of strife
The storms and the gloom that oft puncture my life
For only in sorrow can I pour out my verse
The tragedy of happiness when I long for worse

But full is my heart and bright are my days
In love I am warm and bask in the sun's rays
Long may it last that I'm not chilled by grief
This respite is long due and shouldn't be brief!

Yet how I long for my juices to flow
I mean the creative kind (just so you know)
I'm upset that my inspiration insists
On only appearing in misery, not bliss

    The miserable times cause us to really appreciate the "Good Times" After the great darkness of the thunder storm, the sun's rays appear slicing through the clouds, and the Rainbow lifts the sagging spirit's. After all that is said, we all really love the light of life.
    Your poem reveals a heart longing that the respite be brief, the souls relief.

    Great work!

    This is amazing. I definitely can relate to this. Every time I write in happiness, it never turns out as well as the darkness. Great write, really flows well!
