The Year In Which Seasons Were All That Made Sense

1.
summer
there you danced
twirling
spinning





winning
winning My Heart
and spitting on My Soul.
but i cradled you when you were cold after swimming,
i saved you when you almost drowned in our lake,
and
i made you mine
i thought
you made me yours
i knew
2.
fall
you were not so proud as to
ignore me
completely
and
foreverly
but you were not so kind as to
keep me in your heart
and join me in Our Eternity
The One that we built together with our hands
(Yours strong
Mine weak from trying to
pull away from you)
and The One that you knocked down.
so i was forced to watch It fall to the ground, immersed in red leaves.
3.
winter
the ground froze over
and there you stood on the porch of

My Eternity

begging for forgiveness
and chewing on the ice
that once covered the ground
and then bled from your heart
back into mine.
but i just wanted to see you
dance
again.
4.
spring
i wanted you to dance in winter
i wanted you to dance with the snow
but you didn’t move
you just wanted to sleep
so i let you sleep on the fold-out couch of My Eternity’s living room
and you’re still there
