Find YOUR word that means happy.

Long for the sound happy would present - a burst perhaps.
Struggle for its sight - no longer inwards - some kind of outWORD.
Oh! How happiness would smell - the scent I sent away.
Touch the word like a torch in the dark -
tighten your torment happily -

Before it floats out of YOUR world, threatening your WORD -

Or choose to remain untroubled in the dark.
