POETRY: Ode to Happiness

Oh, that feeling, How your presence alters. Your

fleeting statures, How I praise your return and

dread your absence. 

One minute with you feels like a year, But

seconds without you feels like an eternity.

The fuel of my day, The high of my life. 

Oh, how you battle the sadness, Your

crusade to tip the scales for me. The

veil pulled over reality, Happiness, my

rare but precious friend.

Patterson writes, “I’ve always had a knack for writing and the short and quick format of poems have allowed me to write without worrying too much about finishing a project. I’ve written short stories, but I feel more confident in my poems as they material was written with more belief and emotion behind it than the stories.”
