Poetry: Freeze and Thaw

poetryFreeze and Thaw

My mind mirrored the season of the dead

Steadily alternating

Between freeze and thaw

Sometimes I woke numb 

Buried in snowy memories

That had fallen in the night

Other mornings 

I met the sun and joy

The pattern of freeze and thaw

Dreams dashed

Hope renewed

Would continue

I was lost

In a winter world

That mirrored

The frozen state of my heart

I set your light afloat

Watching the darkness swallow it whole

Certain lights are never meant to return

They make a grand exit from our life

Watch the light drift away

Watch the light fade to darkness

Watch the last embers crumble to dust

Wait in darkness

Until the light returns

To finally learn

There is beauty in letting go

Opportunity for everything anew

Life is a maze

Of perpetual

Darkness and light

We want the light to last

In order for the light to shine bright

We must turn another corner

With it darkness comes again

The cycle continues

Darkness to light
