Live not for the-end-of-the-song. Live in the along.
(G. Brooks)


it never changes, how winter stalks
in, the way overcast
skies sweep over
the sun and all her radiance, then leave a frozen
moon to hang blankly,
silently,

over grey, crusted snow.
years die, only to be born again in the same
icy monotony,
flakes falling indifferently
to stark stillness
below, and you can always hear

that laughter around the
hearth when fingers unfreeze and
blush returns to dimpled cheeks.
as for me,
i like the snow –

the ice,

the cold, and the numbness
it brings

There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.

Ethereal and beautiful, I love the slight passiveness in which the narrarator speaks, yet uses vivid emotional descriptions at the same time. Very good work.

So I'm not the only one who doesn't use uppercase letters for poetry.

Life isn't measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the moments which take your breath away.

You are only as strong as your weakest link.

Beautiful poem! My favorite line was "years die, only to be born again in the same icy monotony". Keep up the good work!
