Happy New Year


Another life
We promise ourselves
Year after year
That our hearts
Will take flight

Another kiss
We hope
For the flutter
Of lips across
Our cheeks

Another love
We pray to the world
Bow down, on our knees
With the plea of
A mended heart

Another Lie
January 1st
Is just
One step closer to

Yes, I admit it – this is a downer (and frankly not me at my best); I wasn’t planning on writing a poem today (I had a post planned for tomorrow), but a sliver of an idea creeped into my mind, and I had to go for it. Nonetheless, I hope you all like it.

Happy Reading!
