    Love and Snow

    I can see it all in my mind:
    You standing there
    at a phone booth,
    middle of the night,
    outside shaking,
    and dialing.
    No place to go.
    Jumping to keep warm.

    Meantime I'm driving;
    searching my purse
    for the phone
    I can't find in time.
    Picked up too late.

    At home
    covered with blankets
    I shudder for you,
    and the knowledge that
    love and snow
    cover you
    like a blanket.

    One that leaves you
    huddled beneath its scratchy wool
    pacing now,
    then standing as if frozen
    in that place
    where more snowflakes come
    one at a time,
    like cold soldiers
    stopping on you
    melting. dying.

    When I don't answer,
    when I don't pick up,

    I see it there
    all that snow piled around you,
    pushed up against the rails
    by the side of the road
    looking dirty and crushed.
    And colder still,
    and colder still.

      What I see in this is what worry and imagination do to you when you're separated from someone you love--you imagine them cold and in need, you think that because the phone rang and you didn't answer it for whatever reason it was them, and you imagine them in terrible conditions that just keep getting worse.

    It takes me back to when my teenagers would be out until all hours of the night--and I would imagine dire things happening when in reality they were having the time of their life. Terrible things can go on in your imagination!

    I could be way off base as to your intentions, but
    there you have them: my thoughts.

      "Good adding, I'll add, but adding nonetheless."

      ooh love the contrast. Covered in love and snow.
    What does it make me feel? *thinks back to tenth grade* oh you don't want to hear that dribble

    Very clever...snowflakes are cold soldiers...dying. melting, on your skin. The 113th Airborne back in action some 70 years later.

    "At home
    covered with blankets
    I shudder for you,
    and the knowledge that
    love and snow
    cover you
    like a blanket"

    That right there could be the whole poem, the rest is just adding. Good adding, I'll add, but adding nonetheless.

    So much conveyed in so little, it would be. As it stands, damned good poem either way.

      I enjoyed it, the whole idea of snow being little soldiers works well with the idea of how certain situations can whittle our strength and leave us cold and alone, good work.

      i like the analogy to how love can strand us in the cold...he is trying to make contact...he is stalled or wrecked in the snowy cold of rejection...and you are thinking about getting back with him...but hesitating...meanwhile the flakes fall, surround him...cover him in memory and frustration...

    "dirty and crushed" yes, crushed.

    really enjoy "like cold soldiers/ stopping on you/melting. dying."

    a few grammatical glitches to be remedied..

    "I can't find in time"
    "huddled beneath its scratchy wool"
    "love and snow/ cover you like a blanket"

    but a super use of snow and cold to indicate unrequited love and a feeling of guilt that might come with not being able to reciprocate.

      Just fantastic! This poem is so easy to follow and understand what the story is about.

    The title is very appropriate for this poem. I liked how you used snowflakes as a metaphor for death.

    I think that this is a very well written poem, overall.

    Thanks for sharing!
