mr. happy

people who say suicide is a selfish act
should try a lifetime
of putting your head on your pillow
begging god to let you die in your sleep
so you don’t have to face another day of pain

what is selfish is expecting someone
to live out their lives in agony
so that you may rest easier at night

it is a final act of desperation
to end unendurable suffering

yes the aftermath is hell

but hell is every sunrise
when you have depression

what solace have i to offer?

once generated
sound continues to travel
which means
somewhere in the universe
at this very moment
robin williams is telling a dick joke
and we
are all laughing through tears

for sleepy little boys and silly monsters…

walls become darkened forest
of imagination
with green
saddened eyes

sleepy little boys
and silly monsters
make weepy noises
as crickets dirge chirp a lullaby

kitchen window
opens itself into a storybook
allowing the sweet scent of
childhood memories
and fire flies
to drift in mind

roses and violets entwine
hanging their blossom heads
as rain begins
forming a climbing archway
to pass through as we
carry tears in tea cups

leading to
this final place
where the wild things are

thank you, maurice
