New Year’s


the clock strikes twelve

2017 has descended from the heavens.


i look to the sky and wonder

what this year will bring.

will destiny give me a

wondrous surprise?

or will mundane life trudge on as normal–

working through the days,

will 2018 sneak up on me

just as 2017 has?

will love finally grant me a wish

or will it tease my heart,

flitting away before…

anything happens?


will you stand there beside me in

a year’s time

and watch the ball drop?

or will i find myself in the same position as this year

and the last,

gazing forlornly at the television?
