lovely in the cold
standing knee-deep in the river watching the water curve around me as if it doesn't want to touch me either. wading through a world of snow, cold. stay soft, stay gentle, fresh like a petal on ice, whiskey on rocks, soft, gentle, sweeter by the spoonful. wind blowing past like i'm not there. whistling through the gaps in me. soft, gentle. honey down dirty bark, where i can't see it. stay lovely like birdsong in an empty forest. eat me up, lap at me as i stay soft, gentle, lovely. sweeter by the spoonful.
