my body convulses from the cold
as I lay on a velvety blanket of snow
watching my breath crystallize
in the midnight air
I hear footsteps crunch in the distance
my unraveling is an enigma to those who once loved me
they know not how to mend my wounds
nor do i
I want to call out your name
but it is frozen in my sobbing throat
I close my eyes and picture your face
as the darkness begins to swallow me
the tree branches around me
like the fangs of a beast
bend towards me in a tormenting rhythm
at what point do I give up
and let them ravage what is left of this soul
in the hopes of finding you in heaven
and giving you back this crimson heart
that will always beat only for you?
