A winter of things

The problem is

I wanted you to love me

I didn’t know what to do

Except comply

With your eyes

My heart beating

Irregularity

Of course

Of course I wanted for love

Don’t we all?

~○~

October came

The fall

Bringing

Decisions

Leaves turning

Dying

~○~

If I have died a thousand times

Died a million untimely

Deaths

What would there be left to say about it

After so much

Repetition

~○~

I thought I’d tell you about the friendship between that writer you like & that musician I love. They write about each other sometimes.

~○~

Winter arrives

Songs sung

Stop singing

Baking warmth

Cold winds

Say things about

The states of things

~○~

Another try

I die

For why

Do I try?

~○~

Taking to

The overwhelm

An answer or 2

It has to be enough

It has to be

It has to
