As the leaves crunch beneath my worn out soles
The distant thought of snow lingers in my mind
it was slow coming and fast leaving this year
the sun shines brighter than ever before as it hits the rooftops and explodes into the sky
my affair with the sun is far more satisfying than my affair with the snow.
The sun never fails me.
the sun never abandons me for what feels like forever
but the sun is not snow
and though the snow can be as cheap as these ski holidays
I have an uncontrollable desire to love what hurts me
