Blossomed Girl


He gave me a winter love
Cold except under cover
Stored away in soft snow caps
He offered false, icy intimacy
Leaving my skin blistered
Freezing the breath in my mouth
I sat choking on it
Then suddenly
The earth turned on its belly
Temperatures rose
Sun rays thawed my chilled edges
Layers fell away
I had stepped into a new season
Seeds of self love sprouted within
And I blossomed

I'm Mariah. Jesus is my homie. I live in (and was raised in) the south. I am, as often as possible, actively grateful for my family because I understand their life giving power. Really dislike melodramatics. Really love reading and writing so much so that I aspire to be an author. What else?
