“To love is to risk not being loved in return. To hope is to risk pain. To try is to risk failure, but risk must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.” -Unknown


Everything we began to known
Would be better if we had thrown
It through a white wobbly window;
Instead, it became a cyclone.

Closing my eyes, I remember
You left like a dying ember;
Shut down like the bitter evening
One night in frosty December.

Blasé words you mumbled gently
Caused me to think differently
And I bit my lip, wondering—
Was it all incidentally?

I wistfully witnessed you leave
As the sky let a hollow heave
And snowflakes trickled down my nose.
I patted my face with my sleeve.

But I must say only this first
Because then was it at its worst—
I did not waste bare breath on you;
I’m certain our roles were reversed.
