One of love's realities - pain.

I am Joy.
Or at least I was
Until I met Love and Happiness.
A couple so rare
Do I dare
I suppose
Entrance into their good grace
Would be based
On determination and passion
Strategically placed.
Seduction - a necessity,
A game of chance.
As is life.
Opportunity vs circumstance.
If reality
Is the realization of a dream,
Then I have become the cream
Filling in this
Menage a trois.
Love, Joy and Happiness.
I am amidst
Unadulterated bliss.
Or at least I was.
It seems I have been cast aside.
Pillaged and plundered.
Raped of my pride.
Reciprocity amounting to that which is had
When one engages a carnival ride.
Love is over rated
Happiness is mis-mated
And I, Joy, am alone.

very interesting expressed verse, i liked reading it, made me think. I feel, love, joy and happiness are very real. Of course it's humans that always mess up a good thing

Like William I start at the bottom up and stop when I can't concentrate anymore. I then come back when I can. I'm always missing good poems though which is frustrating.

Read who you love first... then on a day when you have time you can read new authors.. or go back to some of your regulars and read anything you missed. It is hard.. I have had a full few weeks and don't get to read as much as I would like but I have a list.. of people to go back on ..
