Day after christmas

Take the tree down
Turn off the lights
Ignore your phone calls
Not two times but thrice.

Painting the walls red remind me of the blood
That use to run out whenever I’d cut
I almost forgot, I almost smiled
I almost picked up the phone and dialed.

I quickly pushed end and turned off the phone
And went back to my life being alone
Cleaned my house top to bottom now there’s not much else to do
I guess ill get my art supplies out and pass a moment or two.

Picked up my charcoals
Sketched down your face
Lit a match on the corner
Watched it slowly erase.

Me and one of the kids I nanny 🙂
