The snow that once left soft curves On top of everything ugly, Had melted away The world was full and empty at the same time. Everything was solid yet up in the air It felt like anything could happen.
There was nothing here aside From a clean slate. You know the kind, you never wanted. A smile of contentment for things left behind And a sting of sorrow for the things You weren't ready to lose.
Suddenly the world was full of everything You had always neglected about yourself. There was air, the cold kind, that hurts your lungs Empty of a warm promise yet full Of a truth, kindly smiling at you.
You smile back, in realization Life so bleak, suddenly looks Like clouds are lifting Warm air heading your way Touching skin sadly neglected
The road stretching beyond reach Leaving the truth far behind Like yesterday's past The snow that once left soft curves On top of everything ugly Now fades into a distant memory.
