can it be my fair dream turn sour?
can I be reconciled to this fact?

yet even still
my heart lies dormant like
a December rose

a buried hatred
cast down upon
an unsuspecting brow
to fester and burn
in a tempest of emotion
and pain
and regret
of bridges burned
with no pinprick of light
to lead me home
from this dark despair
which has settled upon me
like a blanket of snow
on fall's late flowers
