november is nearing its end
the trees seem starved of life
standing bare in frigid air

i shiver at the thought
of winter’s touch
it’s much like a kiss
upon someone gone
too soon from life

i look around me
and see death
as it stands before me
yet i feel full on thoughts
that taunt my mind

i am numb
tired and weak
don’t care to speak
in a breath that rises
from lips in frigid air
when i see no breath
from my mother, brother,
father gone too soon from life

i want to see life again
or feel their kisses
in a summer’s breeze
yet all i see is death
among the trees
i feel it in the air
i still taste it
it’s everywhere

i snap like branches
beneath a storm
spiral down
become grounded
in november’s end

    You transported me! Very rarely happens, but your words struck a chord with me, very personal and deep. Thank you for making me feel tonight with this awesome piece! The holiday season always makes me miss my passed loved ones so. Love your talent! Keep the pen handy, Andrea
