“We started dying before the snow, and like the snow, we continued to fall.” — Louise Erdrich, Tracks
We started dying before the snow
And like the snow, we continued to fall
The relationship I had counted on for years to come
Had stopped when I stood by in the shadows
My heart beat faster, my breathing quickened
As I watched her replacing my lips
And tears began to fall and I tasted salt
Blinking because I wanted to watch it all
He is ripping my heart into bits of a puzzle
As I see him caressing her hair
What had I done to cause him to turn
The words on his lips that used to be mine
I knew in my heart as the snow began and then stopped
The virgin flakes transferred from mine to her
She was willing to give the one thing I could not
And as I watched them kneel and then lay one on one
My hands bled into the other
For what he desired he was fulfilling this moment
As I stood in the shadows and the snow once again began to fall.
