sunkissed skin, summer glow
wintry heart, cold as snow
eyes with warmth, flame ablaze
yet freezing is your icy gaze
once i’m normal, twice i’m strange
meanings shift when seasons change.
maybe you can hear, but you can’t listen
wondering what i could have done differently
quietly thinking about what went wrong
where cacophony came out of a sweet song
and your hands started feeling like shards of glass
when i couldn’t help but hurt when i saw you passing by
is this goodbye?
to who we were before?
or is this hello?
as soon your hands will feel
like warmth and comfort
when seeing you makes me think of love first
i open the cupboard
to look for meaning
but all I see are feelings fleeting
as you start games I cannot play
feelings change like night and day
it looks like nice, warm stories told
but feels more like the perennial cold.
