the winds blow and the ice falls like rain i look up at the frozen sky and ask why. i feel the ice encase my body as i ask why. i watch as the ice consumes my waist. i feel at peace with the world. i feel the ice stop my heart i feel fear for the first time. i feel the ice take my lips. i can no longer speak. i look up at the sky and ask why, why now. i look at the ground the world has stopped for me. i remember the wind blow my hair and it freezes in place. i know winter is here and this is my time to sleep until the sun comes back and wakes me up. goodbye till spring my dear friends.
