    Goodbye Joy

    All the empty promises

    that fell from the sky
    landed in a bucket,
    yet
    the bottom remained dry.

    Meaningless air cannot
    define love;
    nothingness
    of words,
    never enough.


    Catching answers like
    fireflies on a hot July night;
    briefness of illumination,
    if just for a while.

    Flying lights lose their shine
    when you remove them from air.
    Close the lid on my heart, I must;
    because with you,
    I am going nowhere.


    Goodbye joy; an illusion of a childhood dream.
    I’m awakened to a reality;
    you were not who you seemed.


    Goodbye joy; my heart must let you go.
    I’ve grown much too weary here,
    holding onto false hope.
