Random Poem:


I'll come to you in
Winter again; shaking soft
Snowflakes from your hair.
When the wind bites you,
You will remember my teeth...
Sheathed in a shared kiss.
You grew cold to me,
My dark-eyed Persephone,
But sleeping love wakes.
We trade glances but once
In a while, your eyes meet mine,
Brimming, open, wide.
I'll come to you in
Winter again; kissing you
In the cold half-light.
