kiss of winter

i come to you in need
with agonized chapped lips
from the lingering frost
on the lethargic
kiss of winter

cracked and bleeding
i absorb your poetic heart
with every painful kiss
down the rigidity
of the spine of our story

that same kiss of winter
meant for
the heart of summer
but always separated
by spring’s jealous stare
