cold

 

the silence between us is the 

distance between setting Suns. 

 
as if the entire world has flooded
creating an ocean between us. 
and I am scared, I am holding my breath:
you know I had never learned to swim. 
 
I will wait until your winter comes 
and whispers cold words in the howling winds, 
freezing over the final touches of our goodbye. 
 
I will figure-skate upon this thin ice,
etching my hurt and silent lullabies 
so that when the ice will break, 
the heavens will know
it was not you who tried but I.
