What better way

A restless love

Than by

Submerging it

In words

Once lost

To the idea

Of escape

To the

Possibility

Of love

Words go

Like snow

Come back

Then go again

On their way out

Showing themselves

So beautifully spoken

Through the mouths

Of false companions

Cold so cold

Everything

Under ice

Still

Still

It means

Everything

Will grow again

Will emerge again

From gelid cover

Moving again

Breathing in life
