Seasonal Affair

Seasonal Affair

A Poem by Alana McGuire

The way I see you changes with the seasons.
When I first laid eyes on you, you were Winter at its finest.
Not a cold heart or sickly sin,
but you were hidden away from the world,
burrowed away, as if no amount of layers could possibly be enough.
Your face imprinted my mind,
and I knew you were something I could no longer lack.
While you drew me in
day after day,
your layers began to shine a new shade of transparent.
When I took your hand in mine,
cold and inviting,
I knew then that this Winter would be one to remember.
Months went by and the sun began to shine through,
melting the harsh cold;
and the layers we kept between us began to fall away.
You had Spring in your step, and I fell in love with your smile.
The way you danced brought butterflies of a new kind,
and I became intoxicated by your essence, body, and mind.
Your lips on mine and the sound of your voice became my favorite taste.
I longed for this season to last, along with your touch.
You became Summer much too soon, and I worried you would not return.
As the sun melted through our days apart,
I admired your ability to melt my heart from miles away.
You owned my nights, and captivated my thoughts throughout the days.
Soon you will be Fall, and we will trade the miles for smiles.
The way I see you changes with the seasons,
and I cannot wait to see you again.

This isn't my normal style. I wrote it quickly, but it has a lot of meaning to me. I'll probably go back and edit it later.

This is beautiful Alana.... I ached with every word, and I could empathize with all of it. It flowed beautifully, poignant, and simple yet visual. Good job!

It might need a little tightening up but the bones of it are fine, It is a very interesting and enjoyable read...I particularly like the neat way it rounds off, and the last line is a gem...
