Two Broken Hearts

Will we have an early thaw?
The willows run green mid December 
My head has been ringing since 1 am
The mouse has found a place to gnaw
At my resolution
At my depleted strength

Today I seal the tomb closed 
Filled with my delusion 
And another’s guile
Old bitterness, frost, and ice
Good bye my never friend
Until spring, can warmth return
To bind two broken hearts.
