Vexed by the deluge of winter’s rain
whose angst saturates my being, my sole;
conjures emotions of anger and pain;
numbs ambition of love’s eternal goal.
Heartbeat descends to a whispering murmur
I consume the rural tainted mist
during sentence to fallow pasture
and alienated from love’s tryst
my lungs absorb dank bitterness
while snow deposits blankets of white
submerging me in loneliness
through both long day and endless night.
Snowflakes continue from above
leaves me with nought but frozen love.
