Bereft


Where has my happiness gone?
It seems to have up and fled.
Could I find it sitting out on the lawn?
Or maybe it's back in my bed.

Hey what happened to my good day?
Let me take just one more look.
I guess I lost it along the way,
But PLEASE not another self-help book!

And my sanity has been misplaced,
(Perhaps I should take a peek beneath my chair).
It appears like magic to have been erased,
How I am not exactly aware.

And my beauty where has it flown?
I've searched from here to the stars.
Now I am left desperate and alone,
With only my ugly scars.

Gee don't know how much more I can take.
I'll just have to become more resilient.
Think I'll go eat another piece of cake
And try and write something brilliant.
