Frozen…

20191122_223056

 

Look around, these
Fields of snow…
Endless and empty
It’s all I know.
Walking barefooted,
Unarmed, unwounded
Counting my steps
Slightly astounded…
I go on, and forward
I march some more,
Not feeling
My legs anymore, anyway!
I couldn’t possibly
Care any less.
I gave up hope,
High expectations, success.
For, after all
The end is near, I feel
It in my frozen bones…
Frost has sealed my lips
And I can only moan.
I fear I’ve really lost you,
Honesty,
Been searching for you
Oh! Where art thee?
I’ll keep going still,
Until I fall.
And when I make
That final call…
I’ll pull the blanket
Over my head and
Vanish, just a
Dust bunny swept under your bed…

  1. Walking in the snow
    again
    Been walking since
    I don’t know when
    No word from you
    that ain’t good news
    Forgot myself,
    forgot my shoes
    You played your cards
    you rolled the dice
    Discarded me
    that just ain’t nice
    Your love’s gone cold
    and heaven knows
    I’ve lukewarm thoughts
    and frozen toes
    But hoping. Hoping
    now and then
    That sunshine might
    come back again
    That snow will cease
    that ice will thaw
    That you will be
    my love once more

    1. *Sigh* ”Real life” has kept me from commenting some of your previous replies to my posts… I appologize for that. I know that you’d say they are of no interest, but I disagree. I feel lucky that my writing inspires you. Thank you 🙂 xx

      1. You certainly don’t need to apologise. That’s ridiculous. My ‘real life’ is being inconsiderately and unrelentingly intrusive at the moment, too – with very little light at the end of the tunnel. One of these days I might sit down and actually write something.
