The wind doesn’t know which way to blow, says ‘guide me’ to the trees, but even they won’t listen. Even they feel hollow inside sometimes.

You gave me the sweetest winter, the warmest hours during the coldest days. Now, two years later, winters are lit with the solitude I carefully wrapped myself in.  It’s actually nice here, I’m warm yet cold. The breeze comes and goes, while gently breathing into my hazed eyes, during those really long nights. How odd […]
