Seasons of Love & Hate
meghanmidget

He sighs because winter is here
 1
and he knows she loves it
 2
when the earth is silent and
 3
everything turns white.
 4
 
And he dreads this season
 5
because it reminds him
 6
of her purity and that she
 7
refuses to place it in his hands.
 8
 
She sighs because
 9
summer is fading and
 10
she knows he hates it
 11
when the earth is evenescent
 12
and everything turns orange.  
 13
 
And she prays for
 14
him to be happy and
 15
cries when she knows
 16
all he wants is for her to
 17
give herself to him.  
 18
 
 
 
 
Yet there they stand both leaning
 19
against the old-fashioned street lamp
 20
as she protects his Marlboro #27
 21
from the icy wind that cuts through
 22
their coats like knives.
 23
 
 
They’re so in love and afraid
 24
for the seasons to change.
