Invisible No More

my love affair with words

the blizzard

on January 11, 2015


last night i dreamt i saw you
out in the midnight air
holding arms up to heaven

you were almost Christ-like
as you stood there in the storm
gathering tiny snow drifts
like the scare-crow gathers crows

you stayed outside my window
for hours standing in that way
i wonder what was it
that you were trying to accomplish
what were you trying to say

i wanted to come down and join you
but i was too afraid
of the blizzard that was mounting
of the silence that was building

after hours of your silent stature
you opened your mouth to speak
I listened closely then
excited for your words
eager for an explanation

but all you did was scream
a scream that seemed to last forever
as it echoed into the darkness

You know,
I still can’t figure out
why i was standing there screaming
for hours in the snow
in pajamas soaked to the skin
with frost-bitten toes
and mind gone numb
mind gone
