Life is frozen, an endless winter night My heart, deep inside, pumps slower now My bones are brittle, as the cold encroaches Locked in a sheath of frigid ice Frost runs down the window panes Of my soul, scarring me with a terrible beauty Snow falls into the empty catacombs Of my mind, covering up my path The north wind takes the breath from me And the chill runs all down my spine A dark grey sky, no warmth to be found The whiteness crunches sadly beneath my feet Embrace the freeze, for there is no escape From this sharp pain, this clear, bright pain Feel the bleak and wintry gloom envelop all Numbing limbs, I am quiet now, glacial and still A ghost wind blows across the windswept tundra Of my thoughts, until thinking slows then stops Now waiting in pale hope for the Sun’s rays to melt Away this cold, till life is frozen no more
