Days of December

Days of December
my least favorite—the sixth
Child of Winter
another year older
Your birthday wish is on my Christmas list
Forgiveness

Passionate love-making
on that icy dawn
Our bodies sweating,
moaning and aching
you and me on a sheet of melted ecstasy
Gone

Days of December
remind me of you
Warmth I can’t remember
unable to thaw the memories of having her
My frost-bitten lips still whisper,
Happy Birthday…from someone you knew

    The bitter ache of your icy memories is not lost on me here. I try to steer clear of them these days and lose myself in fiction, but every once in a while, like today, it is good to feel them bleed out through the keyboard..

      The thing I like the most is the feeling after it’s said and done. Yeah, it sucks. But being able to see it as a learning curve and making it into something beautiful is where you see a person’s true strength

        Yes indeed… it is also the month of my birthday. I used to find it amusing that Santa was ‘dashing through the snow’. In the heat of Summer here? Okay. 😅

        😂😂😂 I don’t know if it has passed or still in waiting, but a “Happy Birthday” month to you 🙂…I just now realized 😳 (I really hope this isn’t awkward, sort of like a Summer in December 😅😂)

        😊 I grew up with cut-out snowflakes and melted snow. I can relate 😂 Either way, a very Happy Birthday from me ☺

    Wow! Both happy and sad at the same time. I don’t like December too.
