Set Free

You’ll never get away.


He claimed that once

with violet lips brushing against

my cold knuckles.


We’re connected now.


His whispers slipped through frosty air

and bit past flesh

till crimson bled into his palm.


Accept what has happened.


My chin thrust back

bare neck exposed in agony

but the trembles that ran through me

were not birthed from him.


Giving up?


A shuddered breath

the warmth began to leave.

I saw the icicles on my eyelashes

and smiled at the dancing light.


You can’t go, you’re mine forever.


The voice faded

a backdrop to my new wonderland.

The spots of maroon on the snow began to grow.

A pretty pattern – and the last I’d see.
