Basking in darkness

I have a hate/love relationship with happiness.
Happiness is never well rounded. It only comes in parts and sporadically. It is a tease. It is only after it evaporates that I realized it was even there. When I see it from afar, it appears to have been complete. In the moment, however, it is a puzzle.
I prefer basking in the darkness of the unhappiness. In those moments, I am aware the light is off. But I know it can be turned on. It isn't a blurry view. It is dark. There is no doubt. I hate the moments of lights merely peeking in. No, don't do that! Either come in or leave! I don't have time for games. Light up the room or leave me in the dark.
