The ninth of December came with snow, the first snowfall of the year, and

With it, came a sense of warmth, of belonging

It brought hot chocolate with marshmallows, and layers and layers of warm clothing, and fuzzy socks

And you

It was a Saturday,

Mundane and grey

Until the first snowflake caught my eye

How it fell so gracefully, so fearlessly

How it felt, like kisses from the sky

How it was the beginning of winter,

And the beginning of us.

With snowflakes in my hair and on my coat, how the cold hugged me so tight

I hadn’t felt so warm in a while

Then came the first date, ice-skating hand-in-hand as the snow fell

And so did I, but you never once let me hit the ground

Our hands more intertwined, your grip tighter than ever

And I knew I wouldn’t let you go

Here we are, a year later

The ninth of December, the sky is grey

Snow on your windowsill, our bodies intertwined in bed

Hot chocolate with marshmallows, our clothes on the floor

The snow looks beautiful as ever, and I could only hope

That I get to see the first snowfall of every year with you keeping me warm

  1. Hey,

    I’m working on my debut poetry book.

    I am preparing a mailing list. Would you like me to add your e-mail address please? If so, can you share it with me?

    I don’t plan to do it like hard core promotion, I will just inform you when it’s available and when there is some huge fluctuation in price (sale etc.), as on WordPress reader, posts get lost in stampede.

    Won’t be mailing you more than 5 to 6 times a year, max.

    Won’t bother you with unnecessary e-mails, promise!

    Thank you 🙂
