empty without your
familiar ground, and exhausted from
standing so far away, my beautiful
home. muffled are the moonlit
cries of wolves as my harsh
yearning does nothing
but snow inches upon
inches and ice-over all
the hurt i had held so
tightly against me,
stumbling through the
present. i want to turn
and wander back to you,
oh homeland, oh frozen one.
how i miss your cold embrace.

i change the color of my eyes
for my world looks so askew.
maybe i'll feel better if i'm
violet, red, or blue.
i change the color of my skin
to blinding ivory: snow.
every winter clings to me
and i want everyone to know.
i change the color of this room
to kill the normal: insincere.
if everything is fake,
i have nothing left to fear.

nursing my sunburns, i wait
watching now how you're so irate
laughing right back at your hate
i can already taste your new fate
like fire wings on my shoulders
your thick words grind like boulders
blood drips from my soul's cup holders
freezing like november's dead clovers
drowning again in this painful light
the sun is heavy in skies too bright
i gasp for air on many a deadly night
you left me to die, but i can still fight
my wounds chafe and crack open
i wish you could see where i've been
hell and back for you again and again
creating my misery, just like back then

and once more those eyes are the sea
my frayed heart has been disfigured
what was once a free spirit lies in dust
this punishment exceeds all the rest
and you told me that i was unjust
