My Love of the Holidays Is Over

I just can’t do it anymore.

I have been faking it for quite some time and it’s just not working. I hate Christmas.

The only thing I have to show for Christmas is the most perfectly decorated tree and fireplace you’ve ever see. And it’s not even making me remotely happy.

My house is missing people. It feels empty. It feels a little soulless.

It’s me longing for something I have never had and probably never will. Longing leads to misery and I know this. I just can’t stop the longing from happening.

Flaming pinball, nerd, music lover, wine snob, horrible violin player. No, I won’t stop taking pictures of my drinks. vanessaltorre@gmail.com IG: vanessaltorre
