Two weeks & two days since
you took the leap of faith
that broke your neck and our hearts.

It seems impossible
you aren’t coming back,
though that still, white face
was proof, even before
they took you away
to be made into a caricature.

The ground you lie under
was covered in snow,
thoughtfully removed for your burial;
bringing a false sense of spring
to your place of eternal slumber.

But the surrounding snow and
wind stabbing through our winter coats
and deep into our hearts
reminded us that snow was reality –
grass was not and
you’d be soon blanketed
under snow like a flower

that would never bloom in spring.

I’ve decided to put some of my book up, Rock, Paper, Scissors. The book is illustrated (as you can see). I hope you will like it. Feel free to leave me a link to your poetry if you have a page. I would love to visit and read!
