Once vivid colors, all shift to grey
This monochromatic depression, how it takes all breath away
Holiday Text from a Millennial in Minneapolis
too broke to travel
too broke to buy presents
too depressed to pretend
you wanna get a drink?
Cold on Love
Beneath lowering skies.
Shadowed by naked oaks.
Blanketed smooth with snow.
Like sown seeds
in permafrost sleeps
her hibernating heart.
I slowly lost a loving soul last winter
just as the trees slowly lose their leaves;
Winter panes weep window’s eye
Flurries frost a stone-cold hearth
Icicles of teardrops cry
White-out-blind to know your worth
where your heartbeat touches the night stars.
breath of magic agianst my skin.
night walks wrapped in warmth where coldness
still creeps in. unspoken words. & laughter.
Thirsting for winter during the heat of summer
Aches for the summer during the winter's cold
Short, overcast days;
air made visible
by my breath;
snow balls, men and angels;
soft, warm blankets
shared with you.
Your words mean more in the winter when they trickle down like snowflakes and solidify into ice.
Mantel of fresh snow
blankets sleeping beauty earth
