A Street Called Happiness

 
The street was called Happiness if recall remains a remnant right
There were no lights where I gazed but suddenly
You appeared like an answer to a question that I’d never asked myself.
There were many like you on this street- two were your friends
I don’t know if they still are…
 
But I dream about this street often when I feel alone
Not often enough
And I whisper your name in all the darkest corners
Because I always think you’re going to be there
When I wake up.
 
You never are.
 
I live on this street but I live with a spirit
He loves me and I love him
But he isn’t you.
He can never be you.

    Hi Francesca and Mr Sin! I hope you liked this poem. It\’s been a long stretch between inspirations. I wrote this in my head last night when I was out late at night driving and came home and wrote it online. I don\’t do that often. The photo was a kind of muse but it isn\’t a street in Italy. It is Dubrovnik St. in a town in Croatia. I loved the dark and light of the photo. ; ) The Castle Lady

    I\’m so glad that so many liked this poem. It seemed to come out of nowhere which is not so unusual~ at least for myself. There is a memorial coming up for my oldest brother, Pat, in a week. He died of cancer two years ago and I almost feel like it was written for him even though I wasn\’t conscious of it at the time. I believe I will read this as it seems to have that purpose at this point in time. Thanks for all the good words and support. Evelyn
