The Night The Snow Fell - Poem by Andi Jakobs
Frozen freckles of rain flitter down from the sky,
They dance as I sit at my windowsill and cry.
I stare at the dark with watery eyes.
Every thought of that night, every thought of the lies.
Memories flood my thoughts just as the tears do.
The first snowfall of winter; that one night with you.
The snow fell but we were comfortable and warm,
We laid wrapped in each others arms, and listened to the storm.
Forever was said as whipping winds clash outside,
The tears burn my cheeks as I remember you lied.
That very night you took me into your room.
I never wanted to go but you never would have assumed.
You were rough, and I tried to fight.
But no matter, you took something from me that night.
You took what you wanted from me then tossed me aside.
I then realized I was used, I was just some sick ride.
I ran away from you, I ran and hid.
It scared me to death to know I was no longer a kid.
I was too young that snowy winter night.
I wasn’t ready for the rest of my life.
Nine months later, your very own child was born.
She was beautiful but the memory will always scorn.
That night I wanted to believe what you said,
The word forever kept playing over and over in my head.
The lies stuck like a double-edged sword when you left.
Now every snowfall I cry till I lose my breath.
I never knew that teardrops could hurt so much,
I never knew they could make me so numb to a touch.
I stare out the window at the black spotted white.
So many memories, so many lies; just from that one night.
