Description: A revision and sort of re-imagining of an older piece of mine.
So Hollow Is This Winter Snow -------------------------------------------
I cannot seem to remember- How I had become haunted in December-
But I believe it began with a hole
Hollow and cold; gravel, dirt and snow
In the coldest winter I've ever known
I dig it alone
Beneath a darken sky; rose colored light
A reminder of sunrise-
Phantom titans- The shade of mountain stone rumbles through the sky-
Dispersing lost souls cast in white
Fluttering; dancing- a lucre of misery
A whisper- a touch; fingernails and clutch
The scars of her are apart of me
Was it worth it? To become free of it?
I am immured within its hold
So hollow is this winter snow
A dream of clear nights; the warmth of love-
escaping like the most beautiful of snow flakes
-so close within my grasp; yet it just seems to slip away
Brief are these moments of peace...
They just melt away like shade
Now I remember why I feel pain in December
Not in the icy water of the frozen river
-but in the rapids of beauty and splendor
My warm hand would brush the ice that beseeches her lifeless loving gaze
Failure of all failures- Fighting to never fail her
-so I continue to dig alone
A form of attrition- my gift of oblation
Perhaps she'll wait for my Kingdom Come
On the edge of night- I see a light- alas a light
Ghastly; a fright- my fear comes alive
Will-o-the-wisp leading to a new life...
-yet I will dig until I die
-until I fall asleep within her hold
So hollow is this winter snow...
