Our world turned upside down,
I sat in the unrelenting cold.
As the ivory flakes cascaded,
I was left without anyone to hold.
It was dark, it was dreary,
even though it was bright outside.
Roses slumped in the crystal vase,
the color leeched out as they died.
We solemnly listened to the radio,
as it sat on the ivory mantle of frost.
In all its brokenness, it played
soft songs that had once been lost.
And in all my darkness, I heard
the nostalgic, hushed guitar strings,
that I followed on a dark desert highway,
that gave my frozen heart wings.
They brought back memories of you,
Through a shimmering light.
For I finally thought to myself,
I felt free of the velvet night.
I remembered how I loved you,
and fell for the look in your eyes -
cerulean like the dark sea,
magnetizing like the sunrise.
So I hoped, with all my soul,
that somewhere, by strings of fate,
you'd hear this lonely song,
and know that it's you I await.
because we had been here before,
Frozen under a single light.
I missed your deep blue eyes,
in this monochrome sea of white.
My love, the radio whispered,
and I thought of your heartbeat.
As I had heard it a year ago,
leaving me painfully bittersweet.
I never meant to love you,
but the moment you smiled,
I, unequivocally, knew I would -
to the darkened edges of the wild.
Some dance to remember,
some dance to forget,
but we danced to love,
no bleeding moments of regret.
So now whenever that song plays,
I think of you and a never-ending December.
I only hope, when you hear these strings,
wistfully yet in love, you remember.
