this is the first christmas
i have not spent alone;
when i have had arms,
sand-specked like the beach
and as encompassing as it is
to my body (of water, my ocean),
waiting to hold me
and steady my waves

there will come a day
that i am so fully loved
that the effulgence mimics and empty room
until entered,
and the engulfing fire
exudes the warmth missed
in the winter snow
in which i am kissed

this is the year
that my endless yuletide wishes
have been made.
this is the year i am christmas lights,
glowing,
warm
and loved
(again and again and again)
christmas eve 2012, train from north station, 4:28pm

i have no reason to. i'm sorry that you're so pessimistic and hateful that not only can you not be happy or simply neutral toward strangers, but that you feel compelled to try cutting down their happiness.
