In The Arms of Death

In my loneliness sorrow 
I reside each night in arm's of death
On the precipice of blackness 
Icy hands 
Cold breath
Retaining only a minute connection 
With the living

I wrap eagerly round him
Arms beckoning
As the mist envelopes me
Hopelessness
The woven blanket of pain
Under which we sleep
My freezing heart beat
In the arms of death
