you all watch me with your hungry eyes
and I wonder
Would it hurt to let you devour me?
The snow fell in great, abounding masses, piling haphazardly all around me. I breathed it all in, as happy and free as a child.
You look down at me now, your eyes glazed and distant, you say these words without meaning, and I know you don't really see me.
I am a snowflake, snall and fragile, falling and blowing to and fro. You try to catch me, to feel that freezing kiss, but you touch me and I melt away.
