Just a fleeting mood...

Crying Time on Christmas Eve


What makes the lonely so sad

So lonely on this night of nights

What makes sadness weigh so heavy

So heavy in the twinkling lights

What makes the mind seek madness

To recall all the past lost fights

Why do I feel so very lonely

On this special night of nights


I canít explain the empty feeling

I donít understand the urge to cry

I have no true reason that I know

My heart just feels like it wants to die

Drinking didnít make it any better

Happy pills seemed to be a silly lie

Now I pour my sadness out to this screen

Breathe one more defeated sigh.

Your sad mood has given birth to this wonderfully, expressive poem! Very well done! I like Sherry's idea below ... you should consider it strongly. May your holiday season be joyous!

So much emotional pressure is heaped up on these special occasion 24 hours - times when all is supposed to be well with the world. Whichever side of the fence we sit, those with Big Hearts can see the totality: from within families there can be the usual upsurgence of stress and tension - character-conflict. From outside there is the plight of those who do not choose their own solitude and long for some sort of kindred fraternity. I weep with you, Felix, cos I can feel and see it all from both sides. You have sympathy, empathy, honesty and understanding. I am glad this is a passing mood - I too was hopelessly depressed yesterday and couldn't understand why. I am, to be honest, much happier back here today with my other "family" - quite an admission, eh? I truly do not like the pressures that build round "dates". Better to reflect and remember 24/365. Anyways, hope you feel lifted, back in the saddle and riding with the pack as always! :)) LOL and Christmas Kisses, Kalamity Kate xx

So many holidays I spent numb, believing I was having a good time... now I can embrace the loneliness and the pain, because I can truly FEEL it... and realize that these not to good feelings, are still a wonderful gift...

Merry Christmas,

Felix, this makes me so sad for you. You might alone, physically, but spiritually we are all with you. Happy Holidays Felix. ~ Sara

It is sad that Christmas can often bring on depression. Do you think it's the commercialization of the holiday? The pressure to buy loved one gifts when you have little money?
Reviewed by George Carroll 12/25/2005
This time of year brings sadness to more than a few but place your trust in God and He will see you through. The heart that is open will be filled with Christ's peace. Have a Blessed Christmas Felix.

Felix, I understand this lament and cry along with you for all the reasons that we are never sure of to begin with, but just know of the feeling. Both Leah and I will keep you close in our thoughts and may your spirits be lifted this night.

If you must cry, cry a teardrop ornament to hang on India's tree. Things are sparse in India this year. I think we have plenty of teardrops to donate. Merry Christmas, Felix! It's good to read you.

Reviewed by Sherry Heim 12/24/2005
I don't know why you cry on nights like these, but if I cry it is because a part of me is thinking ahead to a time when I will not be here with all of these wonderful people I love so very much and they will be having this celebration without me. If you haven't already, you should start a tradition of reading one of your Christmas poems each year as your family is together. Pick a special time, like right before you turn on the lights on the tree or right after, so the children associate an event with your poem. Make a book for your kids and grand kids with all your Christmas poems in them so that when they pack away the ornaments and lights your book will go into the same box, so next year they will have it. Each year give them copies of the new ones. When you are no longer here to read them, someone else will do it for you and as they do, everyone will be hearing your voice and remembering Pops. Have a blessed Christmas, Felix!
