The Sound of Melting Snow

The Sound of Melting Snow

Drip drop drip drop

Wakes her up at night

Drip drop drip drop

No dripping in her sight

Drip drop drip drop

In the kitchen apples rot

Drip drop drip drop

Faucets leaking? No, they’re not.

Drip drop drip drop

Hips feel like breaking

Drip drop drip drop

Familiar pictures, her heart is aching

Drip drop drip drop

Silence in the shower but

Drip drop drip drop

The door behind her is closing shut

Drip drop drip drop

Her face is staring back at her

Drip drop drip drop

The mirror reveals her in a blur

Drip drop drip drop

Her time is swiftly spilling out

Drip drop drip drop

A searing pain begins to sprout

Drip drop drip drop

Faces, memories, all escaping

Drip drop drip drop

Ever after – what’s remaining?
