Winter Solstice

Postby marwood » Mon Feb 01, 2010 2:25 pm

Lost in these ragged, drifting thoughts,
The sweet oblivion of sleep
Proves to be elusive.
A blanket of snow has fallen,
Hiding the sins of the city,
From the wilderness of the
Tower blocks she rises, reborn,
Reaching out with fingers of sunlight;
The circle turns once more,
I survive the longest night.

That I might drink, and leave the world unseen.

I love this final part marwood, well done. Hauntingly beautiful and sad.
