What’s Beneath Your Christmas Tree? #poetry #dark

the ring

What will you find beneath your tree this Christmas?



 a wonderland of snow

gifts elegantly circled with red satin bows

8 knives for carving

1 rope for climbing


 a lifeless form

beneath the fresh-cut Christmas Tree

Read my “festive” poem “Beneath the Christmas Tree”  over at Pen of the Damned.
