December Bleeds Your Memory

December Bleeds Your Memory

A Poem by Kelly Scheppers

December Bleeds Your Memory

 

 

Christmases past are calling

as I settle into the abyss of darkness,

of days accumulating

like a January of snows.

The realm of your existence

is forever fleeting,

pulling me further away

from the precipice of death,

sequestering my consciousness

into the light

for December bleeds your memory.

Winter bless your memory is a power line and statement. Christmas isn’t always a pleasant time for people; many are grieving.

Winter is depressing to me because of the cold and lack of color and add in missing someone you love and cherish and well you have what is describing this poem

Thank you!
So sad to be reminded of our losses. Instead, perhaps on thinking of the sadness, it is best to think of all the happiness that preceded the loss.

Take care - Dave

Hello dear Kelly and you are welcome.
Wonderful title Kelly. Funny, I am a December baby ... this situation in which we find ourselves definitely pulls at the psyche. We are inundated with bad news and terrible statistics. There seems to be little chance of escape, but then I suppose there will be an ending to it and all we can do is hope we are still standing when it is over.

We are all a finger-snap away from crossing the veil.

Love the photo.

Hang in there ... be safe.

Loss is something we don't get over sadly we make room for it and carry it like an old scar for the rest of our days. Powerful read my friend.
