Sacrificial Power

it’s sad,
really.
a courtyard full of lights,
firepits blazing,
people laughing
and all my stupid brain can think about
is you.
it’s like it doesn’t remember
how you left.
but you know what?
i felt empty then,
too.
like you were just another distraction;
something to get my mind off
of the deeper pain i still feel inside.
maybe that is why we suffer so much;
we take so seriously
what God made for fun.
you’re happy now,
right?
so then why can’t I be happy,
too?
