The Snow Reminds Me Of...
Author: Xeracy


The crunching of snow
Under our feet
Sounds calming over
My humming bird heart
And the tension
Of the silent, cloudy
Midnight-hour sky.

You stop walking.
Oh, please don't stop,
Or the justice filled
Knife of silence
Will surely slit my throat.

The yellow moon peaks out
From behind the fluffy blanket.
Your pale brown face.
Your deep brown eyes.
Your lips are quivering.
You grab your elbows.
I take off
My tattered black blazer
And place it on
Your bare shoulders.
Your endless smile.
Your sweet kisses.
I can't help but smile.
For tonight I am with
The most beautiful girl
That I have ever known.

Even though I'm still dizzy
From dancing all night long,
You take my hands in yours
And we begin to dance again.
We dance all over
The snow covered ground
Until there isn't a
Single patch of snow
That hasn't been touched
By your beauty.

White snow.
Black dress.
The contrasts were huge.
I filled up with fear.
The snow is always falling
And the snow is always here.
Even though
Your with me now.
My heart
Still drops.
It pains me to know
That you will leave.
It kills me to know
That we'll be just friends.
I can feel it.
It's been done to me before.
I willingly hand my heart over
To your soft gentle hands,
And you pass it on
To someone else.
