writing my coda

the sentence broke off
at the slightest quiver
I can’t help but watch the shiver
this you can’t take, can’t shrug aside
it didn’t mean to be an attack
but the barbs sink deep and latch on
there’s not a kiss, not a song
that can change this moment now
I try to notice the shadow behind your face
but there’s no use in diverting gazes
I failed, and I’m sorry
why do you want me to say nothing
yet everything
and anything can be too much
sometimes when the snow falls
in the beauty, you forget that when it melts
many lives get washed away
so too, every time you cry
the telescopic majesty your eyes provide
is also the chord that strikes my heart cold

I'm interested in hearing what you have to say
