*ya know, i wrote this on my b-day (in June) and i wondered what happened to this forum. i posted anyways, and needless to say it recieved little attention. But now, it's almost that time of year, so i think a repost is in order, and in a proper forum! thanks for bringin' it back! and thanks to Everclear for the inspiration; i dreaded i'd feel this way this time of year...
i do.
enjoy*


*thanks for the christmas card*

happy christmas times! so full of joy, so full of glee.
but the hatred looks so pretty underneath my tree.
I can't believe You had the guts to send me this card
written in the blood of my broken heart.

I don't care about Your promotion at work.
what's the difference between "sales rep" and "clerk"?
sent along a picture of Your caring eyes and stupid smirk.
and Your arms around that grinning, handsome jerk.
I remember when it was Us holding hands.
baseball seems so boring now, without You in the stands.
I used to think that the fates, they must've kissed Us.
You left me for that guy, and now I'm hating You for christmas.

there's got to be a better way to deal with the pain.
I'm sure I'd hear sleigh bells if i wasn't in these reigns.
I don't give a damn about Your boyfriend's new shoes.
I don't want to hear about how happy he makes You.
I don't want to know about Your winter vacation.
I spent mine at home, awaiting an explanation.
I guess You didn't care about Us anymore.
used my heart as a mat for Your front door.
I know the saying: that nothing lasts forever.
but do You even recall any times We spent together?
is there even an Us that You can remember?
the Us that thought life can't get much better.
don't know 'bout You, but I think I really miss Us.
but as for You...I will be hating You for christmas.

thanks for the christmas card.




Everyone's got their demons.
We all got somethin' to atone for.

This is so sad, so lonely...what a christmas spent missing someone knowing they are with someone else not giving a damn  
You've expressed your emotions quite well

P.S this forum is a fantastic idea  


Love is the life of the soul...
It is the harmony of the universe

The forum is called Holiday Cheer, not Holiday Bring Everyone Down!     But this is a good poem, I really like this part:
"there's got to be a better way to deal with the pain.
I'm sure I'd hear sleigh bells if i wasn't in these reigns."
Good job on the poem

Not to bring everyone down even more, but I heard from a source that Christmas time is when suicides are most frequent.......

BUT ANYWAY!!!!!!!!!

nice poem!
