In the Arm of Winter - a Poem
'Sailing alone in this ocean of sorrow
Winter suddenly freezing the Northern Sea
The smell of spring somehow fading away
When she standing there, smiling in front of me
On the deck I standing still with naked shoulders
Falling deep under her seductive spell
Sharp wind stabbing hard to every pore
But cold just numbing all of my sense
There is no pain in this chilling world
Her embrace sedating me with endless cold
Stopping my running thought; freezing my blood
Promising me a life without painful emotion and doubt
Too many rivers had dried inside
Don’t want to feel that thirst again tomorrow
Mostly when it is will only burn me in fire
And angry to unfortunate running day
Want to sleep
I wish will never wake
And she knew!
That pale and cold lady of winter
She witnessed too many frozen fire
She companied me walking through that black hole
Now she’s smile calmly, holding my shaky hands
Caressing my mind with her cold but pleasant fingers
“Sleep!" she said
“There will be no spring yet in here.
To empty your noisy world.”
“You can lean on me.
You know you need to be lean on me!”
“Maybe later Robins will sing again.
But now, you better go to sleep!
I’ll freeze your sadness,
And locked it away...”
