Hello to you all :)

Hello everyone :) My name is Megan, I'm 20, a junior in college. I'm in school for writing and for literature, and my major is, of course, English. Hoping to go to grad school here but there isn't a creative writing grad program, so if I can't do that then I'm going to go for a masters in lit. I am also the managing editor of my campus' literary magazine, The Trident. *WHOO* It was just decided tonight so I'm still on a high.

Anyway, that's enough of an intro for me...

I am posting in here tonight because my friends are worthless and I need help. Heh. I have a poem. Well, it's more of a line that I can't seem to develop. It has been running through my head for the past couple of weeks (which is saying something, because I have never remembered a line like this for more than five minutes), and I have tried to develop it but it just won't come out. I have been blocked since a ... tragedy ... I went through in October and have had a hard time writing really anything since then.

Anyway, here is what I have on it so far:

Here's to you in the snow,
Floating at my window on cold air-trodding steps.
I see your steps in the snow (,)
[Fingerprints left on my window]

The parts in parentheses and brackets I'm not sure about.

The repetition is intentional.

If someone could give me a suggestion for a next line, utilizing the one in brackets or not, anything, I think I could go from there. Even if it's just a basic statement or something, I feel like I could tweak it later, but I'm so frustrated that I need to get this line into something, and I just can't seem to be able to do it.

Would anyone be willing to help me out with the next line? I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you in advance :)

Oh, and I'm not looking to change any of the first three lines, because I have worked them over many many times and each word is deliberate and serves a purpose overall. I just can't seem to get anywhere with the fragment. :\

My writing journal is at singcalliope if anyone has the urge to check out my other stuff :)
