then came winter

My hands numbed cold
My heart stripped torn
My soul crumpled forlorn

But then came winter
He entered my darkness
Made my cold his delight

Soothed my tired aches
Dusted off snowflakes
Heard my voice break

Kissed the ice
Off my thighs
Pushed aside my sighs
Filled my hope with light
One cold winter’s night

 

Hope & Light

  1. A lovely rhyming poem Gina, and also your words flowed with good rhythm. And I adored your finale stanza.”Kissed the ice
    Off my thighs
    Pushed aside my sighs
    Filled my hope with light
    One cold winter’s night”
