Winter Nights……

Rating: 4.2

What is this feeling within my heart;
Concealed by daylight hours, in a shroud of taut restraint.
Winter evenings consume, yesterdays pursue me,
Smiling, speaking, acting – I can cope, I can cope….
An injured heart bares healing in the nearness of love,
Yet love becomes frigid when winter sweeps in, I am alone.
The world is cold, my heart laments in fearful silence
Winter, winter, where are your friends? ,
Betrayed by the sheath of night, rejoicing in decay
In scornful silence, reflecting on unfulfilled dreams,

Dreading the night, enduring the day. Winter.

COMMENTS OF THE POEM
Ben Gieske 02 November 2007

The thought of winter is usually very negative. I found these two poems very positive in contrast and a more satisfying way to think of winter: 'Winter's Summer' by venkatesh magaraj and 'A Winter's Solstice II' by Ivan Donn Carswell. If you choose the winter category for various poems they will come up on page one.
