And Froze

by Ben Pickard   Feb 12, 2018


As the promise of my
eternal love condensed
softly on your glasses,
Winter's breath stole
through the chambers
of your failing heart
and froze.

    The kind of brevity that leaves an imprint, Ben. The impact of this one is great.

      Ben, our writing is so different (on the whole) and you write the kind of romantic flowing free verse that I dream of being able to write.
