You Used To…

You used to fill me up with happiness,

You used to contain the universal key,

Now you do nothing but make me restless,

your key no longer works for me.

Where did you stop working right?

Why don’t  you work anymore?

When did I finally see the light?

The reality that happiness isn’t in the candy store.

Now I sit here, looking at my empty bag

No long full of my satisfying mid day meal

I think back to the meal I could have had

but now the void of food is very real.

Although I’ve had my daily calorie intake

by the time I sit down to my work space

I can’t help but day dream about cake

and find my candy bar – just in case
