Snowblind

I've waited enough for the winter of your eyes
to cajole me into a white slumber
that would not melt away
you know I've waited,and abated
the urge to spiral
downward into the whirlwind of your toxic promises
I've let the moments slip through my fingers
dissolve in the rain and trickle down
the alleys of those winter eyes
in which I am forever lost
so that they freeze for eternity
drop by drop,
till they form a curtain of snow
to cover the trees of those promises
so that i am blinded by the snow
and not see that the trees had shed
all the leaves of hope
long ago
when your eyes first met me
