Winter's Tears

Well, just back in from the convention in Houston. Did quite well and hope to do well in Chicago. I will be leaving for that con Wednesday. Always on the move

For this evening's (or morning as the case may be) entertainment, I leave you all with a piece that started a little stream of consciousness, but then I rewrote it with a rhyme scheme, and in the end, found I liked it better. So, for those of you enduring the late spring heat, some wintry imagery for you to cool off some.

'Winter's Tears'

"Of all sad words of tongue and pen, the saddest are these, 'It might have been'". --- John Greenleaf Whittier, Maud Muller

Tell me.

Lost in the silent cold
Replaying her words in my mind,
I struggle for emotion
A voice I have not the strength to find.

I cannot.

Enfolded in a blanket of night
Frost forming within my heart,
I long to seek courage
Only one thing keeps us apart.

Tell me.

Awakened in the mournful dawn
Drifting through the frozen day,
I wait for an answer
Except she has nothing to say

Tell me.

Yet I cannot.

Her lips brush against my cheek
Cold from a deep despair,
Only wanted those words
Warmth I could not share.

Tell me.

Her pain haunts me in the bitter twilight
Nothing left to say,
A tear wells in my eye
And falls far, so far away.
