1726: Autumn Bleeds Winter

Trees fade and when Summer leaves They'll baptize Me and You Brothers in arms saying they feel the same way too About the Sky denouncing all wishes As the Earth withers and dies Sepia into grey and into nothing Circling, a warm wind and the messages being whispered By Fall to awaken Winter and misty eves unveiling They who are awake and listening When she opens her eyes there will be nothing but a nest A world, pristine white, touches the eyes of the moon When the last elder falls Death will claim the throne Speaking to Fires as the Snow takes over the realms And all the souls are cold Tales told by trees submerged Their voices muffled Frozen underwater A sunken forest, a pursuit, translucent Gliding instead of Running Flowing as there is Life in the ebb Colors dissolving into oblivion Circling, a chill and the messages being whispered By Winter to slumbering Spring and misty eyes unveiling They who aren't dead but just pretending to be Alive yet growing fainter and fainter Screams released as candles are made useless Irises illuming coasts and motives Daring the night to fall silent and take with it Premonitions of the dark's best kept secrets #1726: AUTUMN BLEEDS WINTER ©Jake Ponce [September 1, 2013, 7:32pm]
