Perpetual Snow - Poem by Deborah M. Hodgetts

Perpetual Snow (Title)

He’s numb from the waist down,
and doesn’t care.

Why I love him?
I do not know

His love for me died long ago.
Like leaves covered, in perpetual snow.

This love is breaking: row on row.
As ice forms at the roots below.

This rosy smile: a distant glow.
While this love lies in perpetual snow.
