How it's been this past year of seasons when the
Deceptive normalcy of wild flowers and
Perfect skies mocked my perpetual winter.

Where there is no snow to cover and lull the
Frozen ground, or soften the starkness of
Tree limbs, brittle as my own leafless wings.

Where Styrofoam birds alternately float
And plummet, never to fly southward
Beyond the drab cardboard skylines.

Where I find no sanctuary in which to
Hibernate, to forget and splinter,

In torpor even if only for a
Night and a day, and be oblivious
To the beauty of my barren winter.

This was written back in 2009, a year after I was diagnosed with type 2, and is in my DUP competition "Sweet Death, One Drop at a Time" as a non-entry example.
