SNOW GLOBE

Welcome to my ----- life A beautifully broken aura Unsettled flakes The sound of yesterday Shattered winter glass Transcend to the unconscious mind Frozen, dead, yet alive Hell, escapes my future of eternal suffering Tiny buttons of snowfall to my feet Firewood burns endlessly, The hairs of her soft skin rise like wheat Shadows by hand flip the hourglass The possibility of change takes --- need She stands on the outside of my dreams Looking in; Quietly she summons the cold legion Confused, trying to cleanse her soul She wipes off old fingerprints White glitter, forgotten notes Spiritual spells enhanced in a quiet villa Shadows of hands toss the glow Daydreaming inside another dream Falling flakes in hopes of peace A warm bedded cabin sits at ease Observing, breathing, mind settling Swirling into an earthy feel Another long downward drift Shadows of hands set the tide She awakens, sharing the stars She mocks the sun, her eyes sparkle Covered in snow - aging peacefully She fibers to soothe her soul She reeks, neither heaven nor hell Temporary punishment, rattling thoughts Captured in a transparent globe Passing through a purgatory world No walls, no in-between Falling far from the echoes of life Sacrificed by death before salvation Transcending to the unconscious mind Shattered winter glass The sound of yesterday Unsettled flakes A beautifully broken aura Depart from my ----- life By: PD
