Soft Snowfall On a Dark Winter Morn

Soft Snowfall On A Dark, Winter Morn

Frost sparkles on leaves and stems

The dark morning seems so unnaturally silent.

It’s easy to look out on the ice-bound blackness

And imagine that something

Magical and unseen is slipping by...

 

 

You know that feeling...

You’re on your own in an empty room

Invisible fingers caress your skin

In reverie, you watch the softly falling snow

As your name is whispered by unseen lips

 

Reminding you

That you are never really alone,

Undesired, rejected, forlorn by the window

For it is always there waiting

Your Winter Ghost

 

I close my eyes

Imagine your warm breath

Between my thighs

On these cold, bitter nights

Place my face against your heart

As the world is freezing outside

 

This morning I am grateful to be alive

Though getting older scares me

As my skin frowns like a scarred, tired tree

But you’re still here: steadfast to me,

My Winter Ghost
