The Long Winter

The toxins were killing me 
As I remained resentful
Holding my anger so closely
 I couldn’t let it go
The silence between us was as cold 
As the winter
And the blizzard went on
Raging inside of my heart
Till time went by 
As the snow thawed out
The past gone away 
Along with the pain
As I learned to move on 
From the blizzard I was in
Healing the scars that you made
The wounds from within
