Poem – “Long Eyes of Winter” – Modern Romanticism – 12/25/2021

Each whisper
in a fading wind
brings the stars closer,
closes the scars that were
never there.

Wade to me
in puddles from imagined tears.
Winter never warmed you,
as it disillusioned us.

Long arms
carry you through storied storms,
as I close the pages
with the grasp for a life,
curving in the rivers.

You are drawn in elegance,
with beauty
to your fear, among your years
sadness had its pull.

I can believe
love will tighten its rope,
bind this link,
forever with all beating hearts
that missed their mark.
