White Winter's Lament

by Michael Brandon Marchese about a year ago in sad poetry
Report Story

Michael Marchese

Of pale moon ghosts I reminisce

on how I've froze

in powdered woes

And nothing good can come of this

struck by love's

snow lightning doves

And Lady Winter's frigid kiss

like icebergs loosening my lips

and sinking my relationships

In blizzards of cold-blooded bliss

fearless should the pulsing stanch

invincible my avalanche

All need for warmth I could dismiss

when old King Candy cuts it clean

in palaces of Queen Frostine

Pure wonderlands of happiness

melt into my slippery streets

than soon the Santa's sleigh retreats

Face down on pavements of abyss

the black becomes all I can see

come take this white away from me

Forget this cocaine emptiness
