HAPPY

It is so strange to wake up and be glad to see another day
It is so unusual to smile over next to nothing
It is so hard to act as though nothing lights up my life
So hard to pretend that I don’t love you

It is so crazy to believe that some one may be right for me
That I may be able to feel so happy
To think only of you my every waking moment
To want to make you smile at every second
To want to steal the world for you

If you asked for it I would do my best to get it
If you demanded my action
I would do my best to perform
I would die at a word or live for eternity just to see light in your eyes

I live to see you happy
To see you safe from harm
And I would be happy too
If I had you here in my arms

It feels so strange to feel so elated
To be in such agonizing ecstasy
I feel so happy
But I’d be happier to hold you in my arms

ok... i hate my so called happy poetry... hate hate hate.... knowing my luck being it is the curse of DA everyone will love it.... personally i think all my old stuff sucks but you know whatever if you all like it then hey it must be decent huh?.... i will stop fussing over what i consider awful.....and just start posting everything i have written.....

anyway i thought i was happy when i wrote this i found out later i was delusional or something cause i was very misearble in a pleasant way if that makes sense....ya it all fell apart right after this...damn love....it sucks ass.... enjoy.....

I kinda like this. It comes across feeling slightly to...poem-y, if you know what I mean.
Its certainly not the worst 'happy' thing I've come across, but not the best either. :/


Kudos for trying and posting it though.

:blush: thanks. I really am not to fond of the happy poetry. it just feels like its missing something to me. its an unusual feeling for me so i don't really know how to express it. Glad that you like it though. Hopefully i will eventually get more comfortable with that aspect of the art of poetry.

I like it wich is sayin something because I usually hate anything happy! I write pretty much only sad morbid poetry so for you to write something happy and me actually like it you must have done a good job!:)

what's so wrong with being happy?
It's nice to find someone to break the cycle of self-pitying sad depressing poetry.
I think this is a darling poem, whether you hate it or not.
No one is happy anymore

Its not that anything it wrong with being happy. It's just because i am not used to writing something on the topic and it makes me uncomfortable because i feel the whole thing came out awkward sounding. I am glad you think it was daring to step out of my comfort zone.

I hav'nt read any of your other work yet, I do like this poem though. it shows an openhearted emotion that is pleasing. based on you other responses to comments it seems that you have come around to likeing this poem which is good because it is very well done.

Raven, I do like this..But mostly because, even if you feel you were delusional in writing this, you were happy in ever the slightest way to make such an emotional poem..I like it when artists like you DO write happy poems because when one writes sad poems, I usually see something simple and uninspired for a happy poem because it's the virtue of the poem that will make it a good change of pace. For you, you put your effort into this piece, and it is really well done..I've said my piece, but I'll argue that this is a good piece of work..I like it.
