A Christmas Eternity

 

Why are there birds in the sky?

Why do I hear the children cry?

Why this distance between you and I?

I think there’s something in my eye,

 

If you’re a feather and you fall

Even if you feel no romance at all

Even now I hear that distant call

A breaking heart like an engine stall,

 

I thought you were the one

Thought I’d catch you on the run

Monogamy for you was never fun

Holding on to you like a dying sun,

 

Why do these thoughts emerge this season?

It’s Christmas whatever could be the reason?

Nothing like the smell of a Christmas tree

 What comes of gifts that can never be?

 

Never to be exchanged between you and me

Laughter fading into an icy sea

Love that can never be freed

Locked inside an ornament for eternity.

 

Why Are there birds in the sky?

Why do I hear the children cry?

Why the distance between you and I?

I think there’s something in my eye.

Kosher thanks man. I do not wish to burden anyone here with my pain, but thank you so much. Hoping the season rewards you.

I knew there was something up when you did that post back when...you know which one I mean! 

damn vega, I'm so sorry.  when it sours, love can be terribly cruel. just know you're not alone.  we've all been there. 

I don't want to say merry or happy or any of that...just find a little peace and keep writing.

Foolish Monkey, yes I know we all have been through this. Some of us more than others. You have a magnificent Christmas Dear.
