Holiday Hell

Holiday Hell

An effigy of you

is burning in my head

 

Starved of attention

and gaining momentum

There is danger ahead

 

Another holiday

With sharing bread

 

Full of apprehension

Fraught with tension

Wishing I was dead

 

Insanity is doing

The same thing over again

 

Expecting different results

After all we are adults

Yet this is somehow in vain
