I would hate to imply
I’m not a happy guy
But I’m not
Please let me explain why

Although I smile a lot
And share a happy thought
It’s untrue
I’m really quite distraught

It’s not because of you
That my mind is askew
It is me
It would seem in review

So I give you this plea
Look in your heart and see
When I sigh
It’s for a lack of glee

I tried to create a new rhyme scheme/syllable count that I think of as fitting each stanza together like a puzzle.

Thanks a lot, glad you liked it even though I thought the rhythm was a bit choppy.

Very intense piece.  Really moved my emotions, with the content and rhythm.
