winter

Leaves freeze in the winter cold as hands freeze against a trembling arm
Shaking trees and hands when the dark sets in
Ice falling to the ground to cover a buried heart
Sealing away the warmth of pain and love
Masking every trace of the person that existed
Building snow people in the place where solid flesh once stood
Freezing over the past and concealing the kindness
Skating through concern and away from prying glances
A paradise of snow to hide what is better left unknown
