Melting Away - Poem by Kevin Carney

What’s it gonna be?
How is it going to end?
The snows come down falling away…
Look to the sky as the flakes drift so gracefully...
Such a thing of beauty...
It’s a shame they end so soon.
Deep in thought somewhat hypnotized…
The cold little flakes falling on my face…
I can’t look away.
Where am I now?
I had to seek the shelter to warm my mind…
It’s a time to pull everything I can from thought.
What can I say?
Thinking of the days of past…
Wondering what went wrong.
Could I change so much in so little time?
Will I melt as quickly as the falling snow?
Sad to say it’s looking that way.
No matter what I do I will fall in the end…
Cold I feel, just like the glass I am drinking from…
Numbing my hands, and what I drink clouding my mind.
Hoping in the end to clear your face from it as I close my eyes.
Somehow I know it’s all over…
Still we keep talking over and over again…
Are we afraid to break those chains?
Is it really that we just don’t understand?
Is it neither of us really wants to let go?
Is it time to go our separate way?
The magnetism still is there, yet it’s faded away…
I am starting to melt away…
