Helena

She is beautiful 

when you look at her from behind glass

in a place where her icy fingers cannot reach you

but Helena can’t quite take a hint when you want her gone

she shows up and stays longer than expected

she is a diversion from things you thought you hated

work

responsibility

etcetera

but after a few days she begins to gray

and you realize you’re trapped in her cold grip 

until the clouds go away
