You are Christmas
You are lies
Everything I’ve always tried to leave behind.
You’re frozen tears
bittersweet defeat in the face of fear.
You are the failure of effort
You are the constantly conceding.
You are like the ebbing of the ocean
Pushing and receding .
You are neither here nor there but somewhere in between.
You are the righteous
and the deceived.
Trying to meet expectations you can’t ever achieve.
You’re stumbling over daydreams
Crying like a baby
Living on borrowed energy
Scribbling lines of sweet poetry.
You’re falling far below
In danger of not being what everyone needs, you’re crumbling.
You’re just another human
Future mulch for the daises
But you’re floating in the heavens
Dreaming of galaxies.
You’re a portion of a microscopic society
A spec of God’s propriety
A splinter in his backside
You are what’s left behind.
You are nothing more then anyone else
just another line snorted in the nose of the universe
And expended in the fruitless copulation of existence.
