The snowflakes fall in slow motion.
One reaches down to kiss my cheek.
I close my eyes, shivering.
It feels like you.
Like your touch. Your lips on my skin.
A tingling shoots up my spine.
I can feel your arms around me.
Hear your whisper in my ear.
I stare at the snow.
Frozen in time.
I pull you closer to me, and meet your lips.
Coaxing heat from you, demanding your warmth, your heart, your everything.
Suddenly the snowflakes touch me again.
I am awakened. Forced back to my harsh, cruel reality.
My world that is now without you. Without us.
