The Loneliest Moment


I saw myself fall to my knees

at the same time, watching and falling


Snow melted and seeped

Through the thin threads separating my skin from the cold

I felt it, freezing and wet, and returned to my body


My heart fluttered and skipped like a bird trapped in a room 

It felt like wings beating against my ribs and chest

Desperate to escape and wild with panic 


I was blinded from the glare shining off the sea of white

With nowhere to rest my weary eyes    

I was forced to look up


Distant, unsympathetic, and glowing

The moon looked down at me

Alone on my knees in the snow
