Winter’s Embrace

Winter’s cold embrace
shrouds the ground in frost
lifeless limbs reach for desolate skies
as the winds sweep my memories clean.
Memories of sun kissed skin
brushing lips to lips
taunting and teasing
never-ending desire and want.
Today I stand
barren ice scapes where my heart use to be
lost and alone
not understanding
what I did to drive you away.
Glaciers slowly encase my heart
hardening it into stone
chisels and hammers will never again dent
the cage around my soul.

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom
