Fourteen Again

Broken branch dreams collide
as I fall blind to myself,
singing along for hope
in the shadow of your words.

Tracing jaded memories
for promises of your lips
when all the time
they were inside.

Tear-dripping snow
in the solace of winter
wiping away the tears
that close your eyes.

Drag me on
to long-winded remedies
that blow me away, while
your smile swallows me whole.
