i’ve not written a poem since

i’ve not written a poem since
july 2020
was holding out until
2021
but xmas night is here
why now?
why here?
why anything?
since
july 2020
nothing is the same
nothing i write
can be the same
there is a massive
burden
to carry
there is a dark
light over everything
too much has been
discovered
too late
now the dark
winter lays ahead
the winds are rising
the jagged edge of the frost
the snow covered mountains
frozen
to the heart
the frost permeates all
the dark light
spreads
over the entire
world
