Against the velvety winter skies
Smoky clouds do swirl and rise
Like a sea of souls, long demised.
Eclipsing the tender moon from her eyes –
Her portal of hope, losing its light.
Conspiring with the winds, they materialize
Into the forgotten faces of the very lies
That buried her innocent dreams alive.
The darkness deepens by several shades
Her silenced agony slowly awakes
As the clouds above take abominable shapes.
Through designed medley of motions ghast
Excorcising the wisps of hope that could outlast
Eerie shadows upon her heart they cast
Until all life within her freezes, at last.
