I waited for you poised on this pedestal
So very long, and now?
I was blanketed in such golden glow
This was all so new to me, but you didn’t care
I was pushed into deviating by the long strong gusts, dancing leaves
swaying in indecision but I postured so confident
you were so pleased
Now, moon beams reflect off of the frost that burned through my heart
no words have been spoken, this is the end, right?
How will I keep from falling apart?
I imagine the new year will bring warm rains that will melt away my pain
so that my tight little bud of hope can sprout again.
