Spring to Winter

by Hope   Sep 6, 2017

Bone grey clouds,
Poseidon's waters crash and burn;
leaving me the fire at every turn,
I'll leave society's crowd,
someday I'll learn,
I could fall to my grave;
taking with me catastrophic faith,
"Zeus, leave me your grace,"
because I fall in these bones;
taking in hope,
leave me eyes of smoke;
and I'll take the ashes;
leaving me the phantoms path,
the only cold side of December,
the embers burn,
I twist and turn;
taking the black holes inside my skull,
the open seasons fall,
the memories fall from Spring to Winter,
I'm gone from lullabies and careless whispers,
I'm left behind in the dark,
a farewell from the heart,
lullabies in whispers.
I'm gone from Spring to Winter,
the fall,
I lose it all,
the seasons are my flaws.

    Very enjoyable vivid imagery and dark theme. An intense look at the changing seasons as a metaphor for the emotional turmoil raging within. Loved it. Milly x
