Frozen

Written by: Ashley Abraham

Snow creeping drifting down
Falling slowly toward the ground
As October skies turn gray
Growing colder along the way
Silence haunting in the night
Wolves baying giving a fright
Hearing footsteps in the wind
In the darkness it begins
A chill running down the spine
An eery wind blows through the pine
A figure forming in the distance
He who chases with persistence
Getting closer with every stride
His eyes glowing with determined pride
Shaking feet paralyzed with fear
Watching weary as he draws near
Finally catching his elusive prey
Too late to try running away
Surrendering to this evil man
Without a fight taking his hand
Still freezing as we leave
Promising no warmth upon this eve
