Vivacious Thirst

If on some whim or with feigned interest they ask,

tell them only that I had forgotten how best to live,

that I had dared to look behind life’s carnival mask

and thought it’s bland face had little more to give.

Yet foolish was I to feel discontent at such a sight

as I knew not it was within me where lay the lack

and that life will only respond when presented first

with my own broad smile, then will he smile back

and I will be again consumed by vivacious thirst.
