Silent night

a hallway and a closed door
nothing less and nothing more
covered door with frosty hoar 

curtly a door opened wide
strange angry people decide 
busted suitcase tossed outside 

she picks up her brown luggage
the weight of empty baggage
her mate on unknown passage 

not a single word spoken
not a sign or a token 
her sad heart and soul broken

one girl left behind alone
one suitcase she calls her own
homelessness will be her throne

flames of her candle quenched
her injured heart badly wrenched 
the most intense pain entrenched

it is an appalling shame 
Christmas Eve only a name 
it will never be the same 

Something went wrong while re-editing ... so posting it again. Apologize..

    Sad, but life gives both ..... I feel beauty is fully enjoyed only if there is an occasional taste of ugliness ... Nice write , enjoyed. Love, Mehnaz...
