Bub-Eye - Poem by Barry Van Allen

Where exactly was it written that good poems must be depressing?
Doesn't life contain enough of that?

Does it need to be a form of entertainment?
I for one would rather not -

I prefer to see the sun and see you in it,
but if you must find a corner where it's dark to hide away,

see all of the above,
a few more times before you go !
