pretty

On a happy day wind doesn’t bother me.

I like the sun on my face.

I don’t hide my face.

I smile.

On a happy day I love reading books.

I could spend a whole day going through the library.

I am taking a pile of books home.

I read what I want to read.

On a happy day I love being outside.

Breathing in the fresh air.

Talking to a stranger.

I am not afraid.

On a happy day I care about beauty.

And I eat chocolate,

For the first time this year.

I look at the flowers my lover brought me yesterday,

With tears in my eyes on a happy day.

I skip lunch.

I don’t listen to music.

I don’t open any letters.

On a happy day I’d have cheese and wine.

I watch the trees outside my window,

Slowly loosing their leaves.

The alley is covered by now.

On a happy day I buy everything I want,

Pink shampoo and foam.

And I am not going to tell anyone,

How sad I am.
