Good Morning, Sunshine

You tell me every day,
"Good morning, sunshine."


But I'm as far away
from the sun as can be.


I'm closer to
the shadowy side of the moon.


I'm the one
that eclipses happiness.


Dark thoughts always
steal away my joy.


Don't call me sunshine;
call me night.


Don't expect me
to brighten your day.


I'm more likely to be
the black cloud.
