New Year Dreary


during this new year thing


that I could just fade away

because I'm expected

to make resolutions

I'll never keep

I'll just pretend I'm okay

ring in that new year

and smile

while other folks cheer

banging pots in the streets

while the fireworks crash

as I pull up the blankets

and wait for the end

maybe in a few weeks

I'll remember my happiness

but from this realisation

I don't like this day


but never unique or refining

I wish that new year

would never come again
