In the beginning

Upon the ice-pearled grass

When stars fade from the sky

I lie, awake haggard from worry

In the shadow of your stigma

As the sun climbs the horizon

With pale, faded rays

I sigh, alone, chilled by the semi-dark

And the want of you

When crickets cease to sing

And songbirds fill the air

I am, begun, shedding my shame

In bittersweet aversion of you
