an angel

 

when i was young and foolish   as 

opposed to now and 

foolish   i fell back into the mid

 

night snow   made a snow-angel for

my love   she 

laughed   a good kind of

 

laugh   i shouted to the stars   i love

you   and i did   if this

were a certain kind of metaphor   i would

 

say the snow melted   as did our love   this

is another kind of

metaphor   the snow never melted    it fell and

 

fell and fell until it covered the whole wide

world   and she is still my angel

This is magical. It starts with so much joy and carefree innocent love, and it slowly changed like all things in life. But the metaphors are lovely and so are the images. You made me want to make snow angels again. *
