The Small Things

Prompt: Happiness/Hatred/Love/[fill in an emotion here] is….

Happiness is…
The smell of his cologne, freshly laundered
The restless nights tossing and turning
The panic attacks from…
                                       …hearing his name
                                       …seeing his car
                                       …seeing him
                                       …seeing a car of the same colour or model
The sweet taste of water after a long hot day
The comforts of an inviting bed after a long hard day
The laughter that resounds in the depths of your belly
Reverberates through your whole body
And rattles your soul
The taste of warm milk and cookies on Christmas Eve
The sound of rain…
                               …pattering against the windowpanes
                               …rushing down the darkened streets
                               …sipping tea with cream and sugar
                                   And a good detective novel

Happiness depends
And is independent of
The human
The environment
And your heart
It shapes
And is shaped by
The human
The environment
And your heart
