The Blood in Your Snow

The soul of man is immortal and imperishable.

Pure and innocent

Like these thoughts running through my head

The delicate flakes of snow melt upon your head

I still remember the first time I met you

Sullied and guilty

Like when I remember the day you died

I can’t help but feel responsible

These currents that are running through

My mind tell me

To forgive and forget

To relive and repent

But I can’t

I still remember the day that you found me,

Exhausted and tired

Our conversation in the protection of the forest

Runs through my head every day

And I can’t help but cry

Despite what the currents telling me

You were pure as snow

I am the blood that taints your snow

And maybe, maybe if we had met

Not on opposing sides

But as allies

We could have done so much more

And then I could thank you for all

That you have done

I had always felt alone,

But now, after seeing the pure white snow

I can’t help but feel as if

You were right here beside me

I’m not asking for you forgiveness or your understanding

I just want you to know

That I was the blood tainting your snow

And that no matter how many times anyone might say

“It wasn’t your fault” or

“It had to be done”

I will never forgive myself

And the only thing I wish for now

Is to once again see the pure white snow.
