Somewhere His Love*

He thinks he sees Dr. Zhivago outside his window, haggard and hollow-eyed, bereft of his beloved Lara, and he knows that if it were him standing there instead, alone and knee-deep in the same windy drift, he too could somehow manage to take one more step, climb one more frozen mountain.

he dreams of her voice
distance ceases to exist
all obstacles fade
