It’s cold and lonely beneath the snow. Everything changed in an instant. One moment everything was warm and happy, Family and love and all things were right with the world. But now I’m feeling sadness and loss like never before. I’ve been under an avalanche before. My family seems drawn to the feeling of not feeling. Although, this one is bigger, colder, and more isolating than before. While the avalanche has come and gone, The aftermath remains. They say the sun will rise again And when it does, the snow will melt. Then I can love and smile again, But until then… I’m stuck.
