Soft footprints on a fresh blanket of snow show me the unfamiliar direction you came from.
Snowflakes distract me from your once irresistible face.
“This thing…you and me…it’s not working.”
Strange…never before have I seen balloons covered with snow. They look tragically comical. Just like you and me.
“I can’t do this anymore.”
How welcoming this cold feels, piercing my body like a thousand needles.
“Do you even hear me? Have you ever heard anything I said?”
Surrounded by silence, I watch your retreating form.
The fire burns inside me again…I am free.
