The Happiness Come And Go




          It is the glittery eyes of your
          that cause my heart to find nourishment

          You do not see my searching eyes
          Feels like I'm swimming in an ocean all alone

          Is there a formula for happiness - life's fragile tangents
          Let the roses live and let the thorns quietly die

          You are beautiful like a pearl in the oyster
          I was just a friend when you needed a shoulder to cry on

          I can read your divine and the powerful face
          My great love which was awakened by longing ... is dead

          Along with my thoughts I throw red the rose petals on the sea
          Is it the past or the future that cause the blood flowing






  * ("Some cause happiness wherever they go;. Others, whenever they go" 
       - Oscar Wilde)

    Was just about to say I read that quote recently, then for once I kept reading lol, and now remember where. My favorite Oscar Wild quote is, "The play was a great success, but the audience was a Disaster." I, maybe in vain, think that quote often relates to me, lol. I enjoyed this poem, trying to make a few rounds. For once I'm doing more commenting than posting. Anyway not the tangents your poem spoke of. Great Work.

    I've missed going through your poems during the week due to work pressure. I then decided to visit your site on a Sunday, just to immerse myself in your usual intelligent writ. I've enjoy this contest poem and I thank you for taking your time to express the pain of loss so succinctly. Friend, JM

    You express yourself so perfectly my friend! I may not be on much for about week, I'm having problems with my teeth, big time pain, I can't seem to get anyone to really help me...I always have to wait until they have an opening for me to get in even if it is an Emergency! So I must wait until Monday, and I am in a lot of pain these days, there are at least 2 teeth that need removal...I'm afraid of having pain all through the weekend! So now think of me these few days! I'll try to get on soon!
