A New Day?

A NEW DAY?

sun peeks through blinds
birds begin to chirp
my kitty purrs next to me

the happiest time of day
lasts
     only
          for
               a
                  moment

then

memories
     of this past year
          last week
               yesterday
                    re-flood my mind

and

my heart
     is
        broken
            all
                over
again.

This poem was written, in part, in response to the prompt at Writer's Island: contingent. 

When I read the prompt, this is not what I had in my mind. But I have subsequently been 
thinking about that on which my happiness is contingent.
