For those who think we’re ‘pleasuring ourselves with sadness’,
Well, maybe we are!
This is the only way we can derive pleasure,
From feeling sad.
Whereas you- you can derive pleasure from just about anything,
While begrudging us what little pleasure we have.
Anthony Ward has been writing in his spare time for a number of years. He derives most of his inspiration from listening to music, especially Blues and Jazz- since it is often the mood which invokes him to set his thoughts to rest. He has been published in a number of literary magazines including South, Word Gumbo, Perspectives, Message in a Bottle, and Blinking Cursor amongst others.
