Her breath of frost and lungs of ice
strip the world with winter’s kiss
Snow-trapped fae and crystal sprites
lodged beneath that frozen mist

~~~

Hope shrivels when touched
weak as a butterfly’s wings
you must let it soar

~~~

Bone-white teeth and shoulders scarred
Claws of death and muzzles marred
Tortured eyes and longing howls
Shattered pack from play most foul

~~~

Stretching fingers wrapped in pigment,
dictate how we live
Painting pictures seeped with fragments,
section love we give

~~~

As the memory fades
out of your reach
I hold your hand
