the sky doesnít hold any promise
like it did in December
i keep seeing myself in the ice,
but i canít quite remember
January is a silver ring,
cold against my skin
and itís frozen and itís pressing
and itís trying to break in.
amazing grace was way back in August,
hallelujah in September
and i keep hearing those echoes
but i canít quite remember.
January is that fear i keep having
that nightmare reoccurring
the clouds are skating and falling,
but iím just watching them and learning.
and iíll push my way through windy downtown
huddled on the corner next to my best friend
but she must be so much more than that
holding my hand as we descend
into the streetsóis snow supposed to be black?
dodging the sliding cars
January hasnít beaten us yet
we fight back with our colored scarves.
January is that nightmare i keep having
that fear reoccurring
and i see my reflection falling
but iím just watching me and learning.
iíll never have a home ever again
i realize there itís just as cold
my home is the trouble weíre gonna be in
punching right through what weíre told.
words now only come out icy
just like everything else i do
and i have a thousand questions
i should have asked them back in June
January might pack up tomorrow
but inside of me she always stays
and sometimes i feel so frozen
the sun couldnít melt me away
i only want to melt away.
