    Every day I smile.
    Every day I laugh.
    But I ain't been happy since...
    I forgot to count.

    It feels like I am empty.
    It feels like I am numb.
    It feels like I have all the parts,
    But fail to make a sum.

    I'm bored and tired all the time.
    All I want is sleep.
    I'm feeling so lethargic,
    Like a talking, moving heap.

    The simplest of pleasures
    That once kept me enthralled,
    Are now like small annoyances
    That only fuel my gall.

    The seasons soon are changing.
    I hope my mood does too.
    I hope that nature shows me how
    To start it all anew.

      well the title interested me right away...

    one of my all time favorite groups...

    the first stanza also intrigued me...and then the poem itself...that late winter hibernation hanging on...lethargic..wanting to wake up but can't get with it...

    there is a good flow to this after the first stanza...and that rhyme scheme works well..

    i kept going back to the first stanza trying to decide if i wanted to feel a rhyme to match the others in the poem...but not sure..

    i think the first stanza creates the uneasy feeling...and although the poem moves through itself in rhythmic fashion after that...that first uneasy stanza keeps making us come back to it..

    like we keep coming back to the bad mood...waiting for spring to smooth itself out.

      Interesting play on words. The beginning kept me reading and I'm glad it did. I've been looking over some of your other pieces and am intrigued. Keep the creative juices flowing.
