A tightly woven sock hat, a scarf around your neck. The winter snow is falling all around you as you step. In your mind you see a memory of a snowcapped mountaintop where you spent the Christmas holiday until your mom and dad split up. Leave it all, throw it away. Keep your eyes on the watery walkway. Wash your face and dry your eyes. No one’s going to see through your disguise. You try all that you know and do all that you can. But has that ever helped you to truly understand? In your mind you know you cannot grow, but still can’t change your mind. All you want, his love, it seems to float up above you in the sky. Don’t give up, turn it around. Leave it all for the new love that you’ve found. Let him go if he brings you pain. Let him go and don’t look back again.
