Happier

"You sound happier these days," she said, and it made him wonder.

He flexed the muscles of his mind
Struggling hard to stretch the lines
To read between them, attempt to find
The truth to bring him peace

He found no peace, but a piece that was missing
Missing pieces are hard to find
One piece into two, a few into many
Counting up, up into nothing
And down into nothing he climbed

Funny how climbing can feel like falling
When your eyes see nothing but dark
Funny how the harder you push
The farther you fall
The louder your voice
The softer your call
And at the end of the day
When all’s said and done
The strength of your arms
Means nothing at all

"Not happier, just resigned," he replied.
