The Day After Christmas

I hope you enjoy this little offering from the Dark Side of Tim Keen.

The Day After Christmas


‘Tis the day after Christmas and all through the house

Not a creature is stirring, not even that drunken louse

Who once made me swoon when his gaze was a dream

His eyes not constantly red, a lifetime ago now it seems

When he was my lover and friend, not just my spouse


I did nothing wrong, let me be clear from the start

I’m guilty of nothing, but giving him my heart

I said the right words, my dress was pure white

And I wasn’t looking forward then, ‘till death do us part


Don’t dare look at me with those accusing eyes

Don’t ask me any questions, ‘cause I’m fresh out of lies

‘Tis the day after Christmas and the bastard is gone

I must move forward, now I have to be strong

I’ll only be grateful that with him my pain dies.

When I was seven, I opened one of those little Golden Books (Lassie) and started copying the words down on paper and it set my soul on fire. I have been writing ever since. I don't know where this is going but I invite you along on the journey.
