I stood and watched them from across the courtyard. She laughed. Presumably at his joke. And he smiled. They were so overjoyed with each other, it made me sick. They weren’t going to last because she and I both knew the truth. So did he. I just had to wait it out, like everything else.

She squealed as he stepped off the ramp and sank to one knee to hold his arms out to her. She squirmed away from her mother and flew across the tarmac, nearly bowling him over in her exuberance.

Joy. Is that what she was supposed to feel? Joy. Get real. Standing in the unemployment line and watching each person talk with the secretary , shake their head and then to slumping out of the office…nope, not joyful today.

Marie sat by her bedroom window, the mid winter sun was beginning to loose its once defiant glimmer, but she still felt the same feeling of joy when the door bell rang.

One would think I’d be overjoyed at the thought of not having to work because we can’t find a job. But the truth is, we need the money. Desperately. And because we can’t claim benifits, we’re struggling while people who don’t deserve help get it. Its frustrating and I can’t help but feel the darkness coming closer.
Its hard to be overjoyed whe

I woke up overjoyed. I can’t really explain it for any reason other than the dream I had in which the white room was emptied entirely with the exception of 3 pieces of art leaning against the wall.

Sarah was overjoyed to hear that she just got the scholarship to Harvard! She’s been aiming for this since middle school. Missing out parties , raves, most social activities and working her butt off while her friends were getting drunk to make a better life for herself and escape the rathole she lived in!

Overwhelming happiness, a joy beyond belief. Spontaneous, strong, emotional, apparent. Not a ususal emotion.

Blissful, blooming blossoms filling up my very heart and soul as I fight to remain grounded in reality. But no! it’s not possible! This feeling brings me too close to the heart of God.

Running though a field and jumping and waving my arms my face is smiling so much so that it hurts and I press my palms into my cheeks to crush my smile down so it doesn’t hurt so much but that just makes me laugh and I twirl and fall into the grass laughing.

She screamed as her black heels clacked on the linoleum floor. “I got it!” Her hands reaching in the air. Suddenly, terror filled her stomach.

overjoyed… I can’t write about a word that represents everything I wish to feel, but haven’t for a long time. boredom, lonliness, and unsatisfied love for another continue to weigh down on me
By Jordan Sawchuk URL on 08.26.2010
i had been working so hard, studying every day for countless months. i stayed up late making sure i knew that formula, or memorized the definition to that word. i cant even explain how overjoyed i was when i got that acceptance letter.

“Chris, guess what?” she practically shouted.
“I won– a Grammy!” she squealed, beaming and hopping up and down. “Best Engineered Album. What do you think of *that*?”
“I think–” *that you’re beautiful* “I think that’s wonderful, Imogen. Congratulations.”
“I’m so happy,” she said, and she threw her arms around him.
“Well, you should be. You deserve it.”
He couldn’t stop smiling for the rest of the day.

I love the word overjoyed. It makes you think of anythign thats good in the world. No matter who what or where you are and you hear that somebody is overjoyed, it puts a smile on your face. I know that it might not be the same for others, but I always am happy when I see this word.
By lola on 08.26.2010
curiously the shoe wrote
on the cracks
on the sidewalk
each shoelace tied itself
to a song
we were overjoyed
the symphony sapped
by the feet
and the sticking of the soles
to the dirt or gravel

SHe was immediately overjoyed when she saw the box of crayons sitting on the large plastic table in front of her. There was no paper, but then again, there was no need for paper, she had the entire room to herself.
By Molly on 08.26.2010
Overjoyed. That feeling of getting the perfect present for christmas, seeing your loved one after time away, getting that promotion, or even hearing your children laugh.
Is it possible to be overjoyes however, if nothing seems that exciting anymore. Personally, I have not felt this emotion for some time, however I am now on a personal mission to find it.
Finding simple pleasure in the smaller, finer things in life, will make all the difference to my remaining years on this earth.
By Elise on 08.26.2010
When you’re there, and in that spot. You can feel it, you can feel the happiness wash, move, change what you think. The way the muscles at the corners of your mouth feel like their in a stretch, like they’re just waking on on christmas morning.

Is the feeling I get when I’m excited about going to a DMB concert. Not only do I get excited about going for the music but it’s now about going and see the lifelong friends I’ve made over the years. Unforgettable memories.
By Cassie on 08.26.2010
Huh. I guess she’s not coming. It’s okay–things are busy and it was really short notice. So no big deal, really…I’ll see her later on I suppose. And it’s my fault, since I only asked her–OH!
“Hey, you…no, don’t worry–I know what’s it’s like to get hung up at work…”

The veil was there at the foot of her bed again, more solid than before. From behind it came a soft breeze and merry laughter. She had been sick for so long… would she be able to reach it? Tentatively, she slid from the bed and groped to the foot, parting the curtains… overjoyed at what lay within.
By mimimanderly URL on 08.26.2010
I was overjoyed when I discovered what lay beneath my bed. Groping around under there I felt several things; Clothes, shoes and boxes until I grasped what I was looking for. The cold hard feel of glass. I lifted the bottle and felt the searing liquid flow down the back of my throat. How I’ve missed you.

Sometimes when you feel overjoyed, you just want to dance and sing and fly. It’s the best feeling. Burst.
By Mister Boat on 08.26.2010

Overjoyed with the results, one fainted.

Overjoyed- extreme happiness. The look on my pup’s face when I walk through the door. Pure and utter delight. Oh what excitement. To be completely happy, to be completely joyed.
By Rebecca on 08.26.2010
A kitten presented with a ball of yarn. An actress landed the lead. I buy a new car. Millions presented with democracy. A plane lands safely. Paris Hilton buys another new car. It can fly. But that isn’t joy. Joy is safety and family and the ability to protect them both.

She knew I was down, Why wouldn’t she come and bring me out of my misery. Shoot something at me, like a pot of gold. I could use that. Then I found the note. the one that would change everything for me and I really didn’t know such joy such happiness could be found. What had taken her so long.
By adler on 08.26.2010
i was too happy. my spine tingled with thoughts of the night we spent. I tried so hard to be faithful but faith has been lost these days. in a time marred with broken thoughts and lovers, happiness comes, but happiness never stays. joy is over. so now i dont believe.
