Cycle

in my lonesome
i’ve come to realize
that happiness
is a state of mind
as well as a choice…
we choose the company
we keep…
we choose the memories
we cherish…
the moments to remember
and relive…

in my lonesome
i’ve also mastered the art
of getting by each day…
i start by pretending
that i’m happy
and then eventually
i forget about
the things that make me sad…
even just for a while…
until i’m all alone…
until I’m without company…
until i have no other choice
but to confront the sadness
that still clings to me…

it’s become a cycle…
a routine i’ve repeated
each day for approximately
79 days…16 hours…2 minutes…
and still counting…
i’ve come to find
that i still love you
i guess i’ll never stop…
and i’m choosing to
repeat these steps
until happiness becomes
second nature…
just like the way i love you…
