What is this item

that's dragging me down

and making the world

a horror of bleakness

and the day helplessly

gray?

.

Where did the brightness

exit and who has taken

the key to open the mood

to more natural landscapes

blessed with eternities

of welcome warm sunshine

and smiles?

.

When will the perpetually

rejeuvenating  joy arrive

to push out the down draft

and elevate the mind

as if on a pulley

tugging methodically

toward happiness?
