WINTERHEART

I fell for him in an autumn still laced with summer’s heat
First time he put his arms around me I was mesmerized by his heartbeat
It was pure summer when we were together
A space in time that spun out to forever
He’s a fire with a heart I can feel burning in mine
I could’ve lived in that summer until the end of time
I struggled to match his heat but no matter how hard I tried
I couldn’t shake the cold- I was still winter inside
It was like rays of light trying to reach through a dark river
He gave me his love but all I gave him was a shiver
And I just want to see him laughing- see his eyes light up with joy
But I’m never warm enough for my beautiful summer boy
He holds the power of daylight circling in his hand
A golden mystery winter could never understand
And while he melts away my snow and brings warmth to my breath
All I can give him is cold- enough to freeze him to death
There’s a reason only winter is characterized by snow
And it breaks me inside but I’ve got to let him go
I hope he finds someone complete and alive
So he doesn’t have to struggle through blizzards to survive
And I know he tried to put back together these broken parts
Because under all this frozen crystal he still saw a heart
But the ice just cut his hands and forced him to bleed
And he grew frustrated, thinking he didn’t have what I need
And I thought I felt love but it was really just cold
The glitter of ice falling for the glitter of gold
Summer could never love winter with all its frostbite and snow
And he never could’ve fallen for me- I know
And so I’ll watch from the edge of the icy woods
Tell myself this is all for good
The night inside screaming for light of day
As winter chases summer- but I’m always season’s away
