Seven years of unanswered prayers Follows seven more of silent tears Too many months filled with fears The only cure is if he's here
Him being me The actual me that I should be I've wished and I've waited for serenity This is my letter for tranquility
I've asked time and time again For the world to just let him in He's in a place deep inside my mind Because society has forced him to hide
One Christmas is all I need For the boy I am to be freed Santa, won't you help me?
The muted will only stay that way for but so long.

All I Want Is Him
Spent my entire childhood with this man Finally got with this man years later after so long almost lost him awhile back and never will I ever forgive myself for the mistake I made: I tried to push him away. Now that he's back I feel as though God is yet testing me with another obstacle blocking my way from seeing the man that I love. I've spent most of my life living in agony and the only thing I truly want this year is to be in his arms. I want to make up for all the lost time we could've had, I want to kiss those lips again under the mistletoe. I want to show him how much I missed him. I don't need snow, I don't want fancy jewelry or a brand new Benz. I just want him and his love here with me. I'd trade all those material things for a rainy day just to be with him. I love him and all I want this year is him.

Here is my wish list
Merry Christmas to the forgotten ones the little ones who continue to live in fear and despair Merry Christmas to the homeless familys because their governments don't really care Merry Christmas to the misguided vets who minds and limbs are M I A who fought for a dream that will never be on these cold hard streets where they wonder aimlessly like shell shocked refugees Merry Christmas to the 90percent who sit happily comfortably numb within the flickering light of there out of reach plastic dreams while being spoon fed fools gold and like mindless moths they fly to the flicking light Merry Christmas to the 9percent who walk the path between happiness and despair knowing there is no turning back when you become aware Merry Christmas to the 1percent who fully believe that common sense logic and empathy should only belong in the lands of poor peoples dreams

Tall trees same hill road and hill Morning mist and wood smoke Cross my eyes first far then near Fear greed recede
Night bats dawn birds chit chat Grey brown same white and black Cross my eyes this way and that Fear greed recede
Resist to read the next verse Unless you read this first There is no happy ever after No time gone by Nothing meaningful Or meaningless Nor a time we were cursed Not a time for laughter Nor a time we cry Not a best or worst Not a just over there Just this day these words This gift we share

A Little Longer
For my Christmas wish list... I donít wish for much, I think Iím becoming a minimalist, The things I have donít bring me as much joy, Except for you, when youíre present.
I donít say that much, Iím a little introverted at times, My thoughts about you bring me much joy, In my mind I still put you up in a pedestal.
Iím ridding myself of things that wither and fade away, In years possessions just tend to lose their value, But my obsession, this fire for you is an undying ember, This December I only wish to be with you, Stay in my arms a little longer.
