Seasons of Love & Hate

He sighs because winter is here
and he knows she loves it
when the earth is silent and
everything turns white.
And he dreads this season
because it reminds him
of her purity and that she
refuses to place it in his hands.
She sighs because
summer is fading and
she knows he hates it
when the earth is evenescent
and everything turns orange.  
And she prays for
him to be happy and
cries when she knows
all he wants is for her to
give herself to him.  
Yet there they stand both leaning
against the old-fashioned street lamp
as she protects his Marlboro #27
from the icy wind that cuts through
their coats like knives.
They’re so in love and afraid
for the seasons to change.
