Premium Member Masked at Midnight
castle bound
castle masked
masked by clouds
masked by snow
snow holding horrors
snow dancing in candlelight 
candlelight deepening the hollows
hollows of deep sunk eyes
hollows of alcoves

And so it begins
Spinning out of proportion
Stopping at nothing

Lawless, careless, beautiful
Teasing misery

While our lives are swift

Lips waiting for a kiss or two
A brush of passion 
A whisp of warmth
As many lovers do
The first was quite dull

Hinting winter’s random temper

Silver frosted morning
White landscape
Reflecting purple painted sky

Breath taking dazzling
Lifting me...
