In the Arm of Winter - a Poem

Updated on July 7, 2017

'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


How beautiful...

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.

I’ll help!

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...”

    Salam, Uriel, my beautiful Sister from another side of the world.

    This is another attempted black poetry which I hope not falling too far from it's meaning, but reading from comments above you, I thought, gosh, I lost it again! But then I realized, how it can be dark when at the end of the line that Winter Fairy still whispering a beautiful hope at the heroine ears?! LOL.

    Unless the other poem after this one work better than delivering beauty only because someone told me it consisted by dark thought! Yaiy!!! Hehehe.

    Thank you for your support, dear. Don't be missing too long there. ^^

    Freya , Such a beautiful poem for such a 'beautiful daughter'. And yes , winter is as kind as summer except her touch is a little cooler. But I do love coming in from working outside to the warmth of the wood fire and sometimes I will even lay down with my two dogs. Winter can be Cozy. As is your writing ...cozy! :-]

    Winter's companionship,waiting lonely and patient to give advice of walking a path quickly to your goal before the chill turns you around.;)
