Evaporating Happiness

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “trick.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!


A trick of the mind
This tranquillity
Like vapour
It evaporates
This happiness
Element of water
Displaced to another
Replaced with emptiness
A dark hole of nothing
To be filled with tears
The trick to subdue
Appear alright
Everything is fine
There is nothing wrong
A mask of serenity
The reverse washed
With fluids of despair
Hidden from others
Behind a replica
Mona Lisa smile
And yet the heart bleeds
Much more than normal
Or so it feels
Until the cycle repeats again
And the trickery
Brings joy again
A butterfly ready to flee
When the rain comes again
