CHILD OF SNOW

Like flint
That face of fear frowns at me
And imprisons my heart
In a glacial tomb,
Eternally.

About me
The sun shines with its taunting warmth,
I see it,
But feel it not
Here in this cold hell
That envelops my heart.

In a state
Of frozen hope I wait
Like a seed beneath the snow.
I wonder in this deathless death
If that's all I'll ever know?

I wait and pray for Spring
If there is such a thing.
Or is Spring too
Just another lie
I tell myself
To help time pass quickly by.

Even if what I'm beginning to feel
Is truly spring, or even real
I'm not sure that I can endure
The thawing of my heart any longer.
I don't feel that I'm getting stronger,
Just older, weaker and more broken.

I no longer find comfort in the cold.
I can't return.
I can't go on.
I think I'll just sit here for a while,
Here amid the melting snow,
   Afraid
   Ashamed
   Alone
