Arc of Sadness

(lunchtime free verse)
I bid thee tears goodnight
As I unpack my smiles for the daylight
And I wonder
Where has all the laughter gone?
As midnight reaches 9am
I must once again
Perpetrate adulthood

My own eyes I see as I peer through the looking glass
Peel back the fog
Push past the clouds
Stand above the rain

Melancholy drips down my cheeks
The flood is coming.
