“Christmas Gaze” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Christmas Gaze”

By Ashley O’Hare

I’m always staring back

at a Christmas gaze;

Evergreen eyes

and a blotched red face.

These salty tears

will flow

for years and years.

There must be

something wrong with me-

I keep chasing

this pain.

Maybe one day

I’ll stop running,

turn around

and listen to the words you say.
