Poetry Post | Confetti (from “Poems About You”)

Whenever I think of New Year’s, I think of the sparkly dresses, bubbly drinks, and confetti sprinkles all over the floor—by the way, this is like the only time of year I’m ever accepting of confetti and glitter littering up my floor. I love New Year’s so much that I decided to write a poem about it to feature in my latest poetry collection, Poems About Youavailable for purchase on Amazon. If you’re new to the blog, you can find more information about my poetry in the Poetry & Prose tab.

Anyway, I thought, what better way to celebrate the first Poetry Post of the year than to share with you an exclusive look at a New Year’s-themed post from Poems About You. Enjoy!


Beating hearts and sweaty palms

on the skirt of the golden glitter

on my New Year’s Eve dress.

You in your black tie.

That white smile.


The music rings loudly in my ears.

I can feel the walls shaking.

Someone is calling

for more pictures to be taken.

There’s an overflowing

champagne tower in the corner.


Everyone is your friend

on New Year’s Eve.


Scribbles on notecards:

Pay off credit card debt.

Travel more often.

Get a dog.

New fitness routine.


Tonight is full of excuses.

Excuses to stay up late,

to pretend to be someone new,

to drink way more alcohol than I should.

Excuses to kiss you at midnight.


I don’t need any more excuses

to kiss you at midnight.


There is sugar on your lips

that stains my tongue

like a yesterday memory

and a tomorrow promise.


I’ll throw the dishes in the sink.

You can take the bottles out in bags.

Leave the confetti on the floor.


When you first caught me

falling in love with you,

I was afraid to admit it.

You told me you always knew.

You were just waiting

for me to know it too.

Hearts that are meant to fold

always find a way.


You can never be too careless

with the love that you throw,

You once told me.

Love isn’t finite.

You can always make more.
