Blogmas Day 7: A Poem

It is the 7th day of Blogmas, and I am feeling okay. Truly, I had no idea how hard it would be to write and post daily, but I’ve enjoyed the challenge. I look forward to the time I set aside to write.

Today, I am including another short, original poem. This past summer I took a creative writing class. Since then, I try to write bits of poetry every chance I can, typically on my phone. I wrote this poem a few months ago. It was not Christmas themed, so I had to make some modifications. I hope you enjoy!

I String Your Faults

I string your faults like
popcorn and cranberries
to ornament my fears
of you choosing her
like a child
picks a tree. I muffle
the bells carolling
You don’t love
me.

  1. I think so much of the battle is exactly that—setting aside time to write every day.

    Isn’t it amazing what happens when you make it a priority? No, really. I’m asking. 😂

    Love your glowed up Christmas poem!!!
