The Ghost of Christmas

      The-GHOST-of-Christmas-3

  

If you want to be cheered up…avoid like the plague.
 

 

 
What weird malady afflicts me,
thwarts my words from finding voice
or trickle down to paper?
The world I knew
is sepia-tinged.
My thoughts / in stark relief
to jingle bells and merriment.
In the world, yet not of it.
 
Maybe the wiser choice
 to enter silence.
 
Perhaps my loss of joy
 is terminal.
