winter oh

oh oh winter

you come with a sky
full of stars
the ground paved in frost

in icicles

you mist my mouth
when I am trying to breathe

I feel you
in my bones
the way that my face
tries so hard
not to ache
and fails

winter time

I should have known
when the Robin came
that you
would be close behind

the clarity
of your nights is a deception
it is just a blanket
of you
frozen air

oh winter
you are come
and I feel you
in me

I am cold
