It started out as simply about snow. Because I really love snow and it was just so beautiful. Originally, the title was going to be something else (I can’t remember what it was) and it was meant to be purely a romantic poem.

But then it kinda shifted a little towards race as well as I’m a Chinese and my boyfriend — who’s the other person depicted in this poem — is a German. I ended up infusing a bit of a race and cultural element in this poem. I’m Asian yet somehow, I felt like I’ve been kind of Westernized.

You’re the first person who realized this aspect of the poem! You’re so perceptive!

Thank you reading and commenting!
