winter is all but forgotten

by most
but somehow it still lingers
in my bones
or perhaps in the corners of the room
where the dust tends to get thick
with my complacency
i can still feel the chill of january
as it stings through me
through my skin
my chest
my heart is so vacant
at times
hurting now
but not like this past winter
the days so short
and the dreams that were waiting
i think they
were trying to kill me
lying there
here
in bed
under the covers of intolerable cruelty
and regret
hiding in the indifference
of smarter men
with greater dreams
and i think i still feel the chill run through me
or maybe that's just the air conditioning
it might be set at 68
or something like that
i think...
