Cold

It is a different winter than before,
Coyotes howling outside the chill glass
With no respite from the killing darkness in sight.

Sleep eludes like a master thief,
Stealing not just dreams but waking,
And leaving me hollow and gray.

No jewels gleam in old velvet cases of the sky,
No warmth, no flicker of a telltale flame,
Only softness turned to ice and stone.

Beaches coax dead coral from their sands,
Cutting toes and turning ankles,
A brittle beauty changed by heartless storms.

A smile frozen in pixels now tucked away,
A January memory coated in eternal frost,
A different winter than before.
