HurtfulHolidays


Holidays are cruel

Too many memories

Of love curdled

Long lost ornaments

Yellowed wrapping paper

And time tinged

Ribbon joy and

Gleeful laughter now

Go silent fallen

In love married

Now all gone

One last hurdle

In loves steeplechase

Our anniversary will

It trip me

Sending me once

Again to stumble

Or will I

Clear it finally

And trot on
