Joy

Joy


That was an ancient feeling no one could reclaim.

It was lost. Nowhere to be found.


It was clear on people’s faces walking around town. 

All words lost their meaning. 

All hope was gone.


Those who lied to themselves fared better. 

It’s easier to believe the lies you tell yourself than face 

your immeasurable doomed reality.


The twinkle has gone out of people’s eyes. 

All were broken pieces left behind by the shells of our former selves.

Denying the uncertainty. 

Overcompensating for the reality that it was all over. 

Nothing will be the same as it was.

Everything changed.

And the only ones with a chance to survive jumped ship before it all sank.
