Meeting her during one springtime,
I fell in love with her
without being able to think twice.
Enchanted and possessed,
I trailed after her.
A hungry beast I was –
desperate to consume her.
lounging around on the beach.
Getting some sun time,
tanning that white into peach.
I looked at her,
and felt nothing but endless desires.
God, she looked so ripe;
how could I not want to take a bite?
scattering leaves in the breeze.
Dying the town auburn,
we filled the air with our sweet innocence.
Love was given, love was taken –
love was a demon we had awakened.
its icicles hanging dangerously above our heads.
Sending chills into her,
it hardened everything she had.
The warmth I had hungrily possessed once not long ago,
now appears frozen,
eliminating everything we had.
She smiled at me,
as empty and cold as a December night –
before she departed
and left me standing alone under the streetlight.
Winter has since been a season of mourning,
for that was when I gave up on living.
I was foolish for searching for rainbows in the dark.
