chamomile and anise

A wall of snow
translucent spine
How is the world now
As you leave it silently?
An illusion of rainbows
A light that struck the clock
How is your world now
As it leaves your eyes?

I’ve been too cold
As always, no better- I can’t be no better-
But coldness is too familiar
It becomes the only warmth I could ever know

A wall of snow
Tumbled down
Those stained glass gaze of yours
Left you blind
I’m now silently mourning
The death of this heart…

I hadn’t even realized
Until I drank this mug of tea…

How to begin
When I cannot bury
What is still left?
