Where We Once Loved

Snow blankets fields
Casting youth into darkness
Purifying the landscape
Hiding from us the realities
Of the harsh land on which we live

Wind bites cheeks
Splits lips
Pounds against shutters
Tears at safety and destroys shelter
Whipping us all toward chaos

Agony boils blood
Explodes from capillaries
Bursts from tear ducts
Divides us from each other
Severing our familial bonds

You drift further out of focus
Fainter and fainter
Blurred into extinction
Like the love we shared
In the warmth of summer

Plenty were my hopes
Plenty were my dreams
Now, I have only memories
Projected on the white canvas
Covering the land

where we once loved.
