    happy days must be
    long gone cuz
    the world feels numb and--
    even the sun is frowning--
    and stars are dead--

    flashing

    similar to
    the flickering tail end--
    of an afflicted firefly--
    trapped in a glass jar--
    free to entertain its captor--
    yet not free
    to
    be
    free--

    love is distant--
    like the chances of a triple crown--
    or equality--
    I*
    wish i could live my little pathetic life and--
    walk looking
    straight
    ahead

    but i
    can
    not

    the past is a warm embrace
    that touches my spirit when
    i see lightning--
    in my peripheral vision--
    frightening and quickening intentions to--
    make my own--
    responsible
    rational
    decisions...

    happy days....
    o
    happy days...
    how
    far behind me
    are

    thee?
