    i don’t know why happiness is so elusive
    it comes in moments
    fleeting, yet tinged with sadness

    one minute we are smiling and laughing
    the next i see a small sign
    a flicker of hidden thoughts and feelings

    when did i become your dark little secret
    the person that you enjoy in private
    the hidden friend that you laugh and joke with

    you deny me to others around you
    they have your heart
    i have your body and your secrets

    i take this time to stir my iced tea
    become imbibed in sadness
    the sugar never melts at the bottom of the glass….

    Sometimes you have to stir often...

    ...and like that tea with the "sugar always on the bottom", sometimes you got to stir it a little more often!

    Sometimes things happen
    so quickly we don't recall
    how we got into certain
    situations.

    Deep piece of poetry.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Scribeaboutit! It helps.
    CCBSKYN :heart:

    wow

    Girl, sometimes thats how it is ~bittersweet~
    especially in affairs of the heart.............

    I say if the sugar don't melt
    through the glass out and start over from scratch....boil the water first ;)

    bittersweet is an appropriate response for the way the moment felt. Thanks.
