Love – You Hold Out Your Hand

Love – you hold out your hand to me
Suddenly the world is blanketed in snow
Icicles hang from your fingertips and I feel cold

Love – you hold out your lips to me
Suddenly everywhere is cold and blue
Your long white dresses clink like ice
The wood of your bones creaks in the wind

Love – you look at me with your eyes
Ice frozen cages that capture the past
Hard as memorial stones
Bright as the blinding sun upon the snowfield

My heart like a tulip bulb aching to flower
Wrapped in the chains of your winter
Love – your body like a pillow of snow and ice
Love – why do you look back into the blizzard

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.
