I Try To Write a Happy Poem

I try to write a happy poem
Despite all that I’ve been through
I try to write of the good times
But yet I feel so blue

Tears are rolling down my cheeks
Yet I’m trying so hard not to cry
I’m trying to put a smile on my face
But it feels like my heart has died

I try to write a happy poem
I think of things that made me laugh
But all those laughs were lies
And that laughter is now replaced with tears

The sun doesn’t seem to shine
The rain won’t go away
I’m a mold of my former self
Food and drink I can no longer taste

I try to write a happy poem
But I cannot write what I don’t feel
So instead I’ll write this little poem
While I continue to drown in my tears
