It feels like just another day…

I look at Mr. Purply our decorated purple Christmas tree

I feel nothing

It’s just another day

It feels like a Friday off

Whatever joy of the holiday I hope to feel

It is just so passe

Just another day

Even with all the treats eaten and gifts wrapped

All the music played

It’s STILL just another day

AND when tomorrow arrives

Yup, it will feel like Saturday

There might be an ounce of joy

Fleeting as it may


Christmas it seems since maybe 1991

When the family unit was still whole

Mom, Dad, Brother, Dog & Cat

The Dynamic complete

Is thirty years dormant

And here I sit typing this

Perusing the WordPress pages

Of percieved joy

When last I truly felt Christmas, I was a little boy

Yes in ’91 I was 21

But at 51

I feel astray

On this Christmas Eve day

That Truly

Feels like

Just another day
