Strings of white lights Strung all around Soft petaled snowflakes Falling to the ground Joyous carolers Spreading musical cheer Everyone reminiscing About another great year Wide-eyed children Gathered round each tree Meeting with Santa And sitting on his knee Secret mistletoe kisses In candlelit rooms Red poinsettias Never failing to bloom Warm eggnog cocktails And bobble-filled wreaths Celebrating a season Full of many beliefs Garland draped windows With snowy white scenes These are the memories From our childhood dreams
*I’ve decided to start doing more drawings to go with my poems. I don’t draw nearly enough and I feel like my skills need improving. So… I am going to do a weekly drawing and write a poem to go with each one. I guess by deciding this, I’m sort of starting my New Years resolutions early, What do y’all think? Any other ideas for how I can improve my drawing skills while still keeping up with my poetry? ~M
Silent killer, invisible threat, wrapped around my heart like an all-consuming net. Tugging, squeezing, barely able to breathe, this is the reason why I endlessly grieve. The elephant in the room gets heavier on my heart, feels like my insides are being ripped apart. Loss is a thing I cannot seem to bear; still, the weight of it follows me everywhere.
If only everyone were like you, but then you wouldn’t be so special to me. It’s your uniqueness that makes me adore you, and you’re all that I can see. There isn’t another I’d rather spend my time with; nobody else will ever do. You’re the one I want to share my whole life with; I just can’t live without you.
