The Horror of Happiness

by Dan Bonser (writer), Keota, OK, October 26, 2012

A humorous poem about the the horror of being loved, and how you cannot escape being love in return!

I’ve woken from a dream
To arrive in another dream
A dream of passion
A dream of a moon beam

It shines down upon me
As I lay in my bed
Cuddled with the woman
Who dances in my head

She haunts my
Every waking hour
Yet is in every dream
Event he most dour

I cannot escape
This love I’ve found
There is no hope
I am eternally bound

To love this woman
With all my heart
I knew she was the one
Right from the start

Eternally happy
I shall ever be
A curse that has settled
On every inch of me

In my dream
I’m chased from room to room
By the impending sound
Of my forthcoming doom

It seems I just escaped
By slipping into the dream
Now here we are again
Courting to the extreme

So I awake,
In the middle of the night
To empty the pain
Caused by my bladder’s plight

I hope not to wake her
Because I know if I do
She will catch me and hold me
And kiss me till I can’t argue

This is a horrible thing I’ve found
Being loved so throughly
That I can’t escape happiness
From the woman who’ll be my wifey.

Such joy and wonder
Has been laid upon my soul
That even nightmares
Don’t do enough to console

Where has my depression gone?
Where is my sadness?
Did I really lose all that brooding
Because she wore a wedding dress?

My fate is sealed
Both in the dream and out
For I am a happy man
And have no more reason to pout.

It is so ironic. We Are so accustomed to misery that happiness is uncomfortable- we want to go back to the familiar. You manage to capture this dilemma in a humourous manner.
