and fear

hazy sky consumed with cold
outstretched from the arms it bears
comfort in a thick embrace
& silence

mortal mind screams in me
concept of a feeling turned misery
yet darkness summons joy
& healing

redemption chained to a post
years drift with my whip
I splinter and crack in the gire
& gamble

like the cold that consumes
let it haunt my bones
purify my sinews with pain
& fear

and slowly I become death
a cockroach on the bed
swept up with broom and pan
to be forgiven again.
