Crumpled Words – Day Twenty-One

It had been a very long time since she had been happy. She wasn’t even certain if she knew what the word meant anymore. With a sigh she crumpled the paper in front of her and tossed it to the side. A few pen strokes were visible despite the ball the paper was in the shape of.

Happiness is just a word,
A sense of self that I lack
Something I wish to get back.
 
Yet I lack the strength
To cross the depths of the ford
And find my way forward.
 

Written for two different purposes today. The first is for NaPoWriMo and only includes the poem part, though I didn’t use the prompt this time (http://www.napowrimo.net/2014/04/day-21-2/). The second is for a new challenge from someone that I’ve been following recently and have enjoyed reading her various posts: http://suzie81speaks.com/2014/04/21/weekly-word-challenge-happy/

I hope that this day has found people well. I have not slept since Saturday night and I feel so very floaty…
