Nestled cacophonous beside frozen flow
none shall pass.
Hugging legs to chest downed in
artificial warmth, lost,
Christened and baptised beliefs
in earth beneath feet and surety of thaw
I search for you.
None shall pass.
Darkened shadows creep closer to
this sanctimonious threshold
clawing for freedom where only spirits
exist out of time.
There you stand,
In dancing hues of darkening want,
close enough to smell your heat,
too far to touch.
Cool eyes on my skin,
you are ether. Gone
and none shall pass.
