Cold air
lingers with your
frail picture on the wall
your glow has faded and I see
the agony you kept inside your smile.
I never knew pain until you
vanished from the future
leaving behind
the past.

Coated
like layers
of aloneness drape me
when stuck inside a dry slumber.
You were the humidity of the night
now I must lay with brittle sheets
comfort gone along with the
essence in life--
my heart.

Frozen
over like a
lake in a bad snowstorm.
How do I heat what has died?
Life needs warmth and you are so cold.
There is no way to cure this hurt
or fix this pain from my
lovely frosted
heartbreak.
