It's much easier to share

  • It's much easier to share
    Sadness on common shoulders,
    To settle tragic memory
    Like incense in a room,
    Than the perfume
    That is Joy.

    That pleasant, fresh-baked
    Happiness is less,
    Just less, and distress
    Is such sweet punch to swallow.

    I should have sensed
    The heady lingering scent
    Is too great, that its
  • Pesky presence seems a slight.
  • It's not. It assists as it stings
  • To smooth the lines
  • Binding two distinct times,
  • Soothes as it bites.
