My favoured reality

My favoured reality

a drear day dawning through the window,
grey silent mist closing in,
leafless black trees, yellowed grass in the field

inside the house a joyless silence
resounds with last night’s miserable
miscommunication and misunderstanding

further inside, a melancholy mind
contemplates life’s failures so far
and shrinks from the ones to come

in some alternative universe
somebody is longing to experience
the good fortune of this triple whammy

they are lamenting another day to endure
of relentless sunshine, boring harmony,
and troublesome joie de vivre

The wall between these realms is satisfyingly solid
built up in mind over generations –
a quick glance, and then back my favoured reality.
