Where shines the light

 

Dressed warmly for this winter

in layer upon layer

of living, breathing

networks of denial.

 

Lies upon fears,

I cannot withstand your love

and my own is trapped

screaming among webs,

audible

echoing in darkness.

 

I need only freeze a lifetime

and hold you.

 

Ice

melting around us.
