Changing Season

Unlit Christmas trees contain next year’s

expectations emphasising this years’ went

unfulfilled. Happily ever afters’, sold out,

on top of worn out foundations.

 

Rumours spread: change brings sadness and

pain. Soothed by imaginary visions, barricaded

by seasons of luxury and joy, resenting generations

that provide charity or real life fairy tales.

 

Anxiety filled phone calls made to remnants

of people we used to know. Rented families

make the beauty pageant. Borrowed money

buys presents that get robbed the next day.

 

Festivity reminds the lonely just how lonely

they are. The suicide queue starts. Everyone

asks why didn’t they just say? Because there

was no one to listen, anyway.
