Holiday Heartache Keep Me Blue

Once upon a Christmas Time
I was happy you were mine
Now this holiday is sad
Thinking of the love we had
That you threw away like trash
Making me fall hard and crash
Breaking me from outside in
How do I start to begin
Unwrapping the pain you left
Leaving me with no regret
The bows of love that made me smile
Are shredded ribbons in a pile
The paper signed with both our names
Is now burning in the flames
The present of my love each year
Was torn open with hate, not care
I was the star that tried to shine
And sparkle when you were mine
Stringing popcorn all night long
Until my love you strung along
Songs of joy and laughter sung
Till your voice of lying stung
Snowmen built up from the ground
Like our life till it fell down
Hot chocolate with marshmallows
Can't keep me warm from the cold
That froze my heart into ice
Now nothing can crack or slice
It back to a hot beating rhythm
My mind can no longer fathom
It melting ever again
I am giving up on men

    This is very creative and unique! I like the way you take these things we treasure at Christmastime, and turn them into memories we want to forget. Sometimes, life just turns out that way. Hopefully, these bad memories will fade away, and good ones will find you!

    Take heart my dear, there is someone just for you, it may be just around the corner, until then, know you are loved by the one who knitted you so perfectly inside your mother's womb, acknowledge the beauty in you, and surround yourself with people you can nurture you, big hugs from my heart, xxx
