I’m participating in the daily March Slice of Life Challenge #SOL22 by Two Writing Teachers! Today is day 9!

I close the curtains
And I pretend I don’t see you outside
Giving you the cold shoulder
But really you are the one who sends chills down my spine

There is a space between the two curtain panels
And I can see you there, through the cracks
Daring me to open, to take another look at you
Your presence is suffocating
It diminishes the hope I had for better days
Sunnier days
Warmer days
Days where life seems to be blooming
Again and often

For now, I will ignore you
Pretend I don’t see you there mocking me
But soon
Soon I will get a shovel
And will remove you, once again
I’m so tired of you snow

  1. I love the way you described the snow! It was a very clever way to write about it. Love the ending! Maybe it will be gone tomorrow 😉
