POEM: “Advent Calendar” by Jamz

“Advent Calendar” by Jamz

I count down the days
To a Christmas alone,
When i thought I’d be with you.
How many windows did you open
And take a piece of my soul?
Do you even see the days anymore,
Or is each one a painful eternity
That you give sweetly to me?
Will you ever wake
And see my ghost in your cold breath?
Or do you no longer sigh my name
In your selfish sleep?
Did you feel my winter
When you reached out for me?
Then draw back your hand
And recoil
Because I used to be your summer?
Merry Christmas.
