alone, death, poetry

a sorrow of leaves

I find you in the leaves

Of turning snow

And I sigh

At the look of the sky

Closing eyes I feel

Your breath hit the air

In the haze of ice

That’s my downfall

As I lay next to you

Face to face in stone

Chilled to the bone

You as warm as the sun

I feel a heartbeat

Unable to turn I smile

Knowing I am no more
