The frost is forming once more
Where we fed the flames
Nothing but a whisper of smoke
Words take shape
Then slip away
The tapestry is unravelling
I can’t keep it straight
I don’t understand

I feel the ice in my veins
Strangling my heart
Freezing my gut
I want to scream
But only smile
The light dimming
I’m not strong
I’m not you

I don’t think it will work
My lungs won’t open

Not this time
This time there is just frost
