You took down the fairylights
And I didn’t know what to say.
How could I explain to you the need for those little buds of soft glowing light ?
And I don’t say ‘need’ lightly.
You know this time of year is hard for me
You know the opaque clouds that fill the sky ?
Well they fill me too.
Those lights were my solace
A twinkle in the drab grey that permeates every cavity of this godforsaken soul.
But you bundled them up tightly and put them away
They made the place look messy
But I’m the one who is here all day
Don’t I have a say ?
Don’t take away my light
Don’t leave me in the dark
There is a cold wind howling
And a shadow at the door.
