Reaching For You


Restless and weary
of this walled winter prison
I venture out
for a tryst with nightfall
walking beneath a stark white moon
through a tapestry
of new falling snow
so thick and soft
this world is muffled and lost

I stop and reach out
to gently puncture
this veil of ice
and in that moment
I feel your hand take mine
pulling me into you
to your heat
to the side of the curtain
where I long to be

But no, the old man of winter
will have none of that
as with a harsh bitter breath
he impels me back
to my side of this world
leaving you
leaving me
wanting you more
waiting
for the next chance
to reach for you
