Behind the Wall of Glass

Is it familiar

that ice that has dribbled down

from the edges of your house

walling you in

behind their clear beauty

did the wraith of winter

offer some sort of meaning

as it blew through your skin

into the echoing halls of your soul

to steal your life

why then do you fear the sun

and all the freedom of spring

has the spirit of fear

ever given you perfect love

why then do you shrink from the light

and all the warmth it is waiting to reveal

has this isolation really kept you healthy

how will anyone know who you are if you keep your face hidden

from the gentle rain of April

waiting to melt away

all those thoughts of January

still frozen behind your stare

as you stand so desperately still

like a mannequin in the window

just beyond my reach
