A Warmth Known Only To Me - Poem by William Blake Beckett

I see a tundra filled with sparkling white.
I squint my eyes at it's dazzling allure.
And I wonder if it would be alright
If I were to hope to see it once more.

It is snow that causes swells in her chest
And her smile is what always stirs mine.
A flower at worst, an angel at best,
She stands, warm in winter, frozen in time.

Maybe one day I could summon the strength
To confess to her in the Winter heat
That one day we could, together, at length
Enjoy long moments where our eyes would meet.

And should I gaze upon her face again,
I would hope to feel snow upon my skin.

    I have to say, the melancholy is dirge-like. The imminent demise of the Romantic beauty is astounding in such a young poet. Well-done. I'd like to read it again after a hard edit. (Report) Reply

    A love lost is a moment of endless sentiment!
    Your hidden recherché of instinct, has majestically intertwined with a moment of unforgettable imagination.
    Best wishes. (Report) Reply
