Writing in the Winter Chill

Darkness sets in the horizon
The day's mist gets thicker and dense
The firewood is out, the coal is ready
The streets dimly lit, no cars, so empty.

Behind the clouds, in the jet black sky
Almost non-existent, it hides on the sly
At times showing its self, playing peek-a-boo
In vain, it tries to chine and glisten - the moon.

They cast shadows, the darkest you've ever seen
You smell moisture, you smell green
Their leaves rustle in the whistling breeze
Like they're breathing through the night - the trees.

Indoors, the fire is lit, the heaters are on
Snuggled in my blanket, cozy and warm
I sip on my tea, so steamy and hot
Decide to write this poem, rhyming in thought.

Through the thick fog, everything's hazy
So quiet, so dull, quite so eerie
Unlike the brightness, within hours that brings the day
This unsettling darkness seems here to stay.

Not a soul on the road, all back in
Escaping the cold, the gloom, the chill
My thoughts go into a frenzy - I need words to describe
I need a pen and paper - I need to write.

You and Me

You're into me, I'm into you
We talk and talk, that's all we do
We share our stories, our lives, our pain
But there's a line we draw, a line we feign

We're close, yet so far
we're killing time, counting stars
Beating around the bush, when we really know
We're meant to be, you're winter, I'm snow

How long do we fake the real feel inside
How long do I ride the high tide
Can't you hint it? Can't you speak out?
How do I know you like what we've got?

I'm clueless, not knowing what you feel
Don't know what you're thinking, don't know what's the deal
We're friends I guess, seems like that to me
But I know there's something else, deeper than we see

I can't get it out, don't know how to say it
I feel a connection, our souls so livid
Why doesn't it show on the outside, why does my mind say no
My heart's flipping, fluttering, jumping high and low

I want to build the courage,
I want to tell you now
How much I love you,
and for long its been how

I love you more than life,
I love you more than me
I love you more than you could ever know,
What love is meant to be
