Death In Winter - Poem by Simone Otto

As night beckons,
I run down the damp road.
I see nothing but you,
Even though it’s raining.

You reach out for me,
But Winter’s love dies.
The cold hands rip you from my life.

Your love will be the death of me,
As I stop on the road of my life
And stare at the spot you were
Once standing.

Fall kills Summer as
Winter rips my life apart.
I feel for the place you once
Stood in my heart.
Though all I see is a
Raven-black night.

I look around,
Searching for some kind of comfort.
Though all I feel,
Is a dark bitter cold.

I would dream of a night,
That is warm and humid.
I dream what you’re dreaming,
Even though we’re opposites.

A dark cold bites at my soul,
Beckoning me to join it.
I recognize the feeling,
I tear away it’s claws from my throat.

I look up to a light,
And see your face.
So angelic, so pure.
It brings tears to my eyes.

Though I know it’s an illusion.
I know by the cold, crystal air.
It bites into my soul.
I let it take me,
I let myself fall.
Fall into the Abyss,
To join you and Winters dark death.

Simone (Elizabeth) Otto
