Snow Maidens by Sara Cleto & Brittany Warman

When we fell apart

Snow took us in -

She muffled our sorrow,

Forged our tears into

Jewels and


The taste of snowflakes and

The smell of cold winds -

These we devoured together, like

Candy, like love.

What is ice but a


Dark enough to

Hide sorrow,



We want none of them.

We want:


Blizzards, storms,

Shards strong enough to

Rip through who we

Should, would, were.
