Cold Is A Phantom

Weeping profuse

do tender hearts

when tender lives

from life do part.

Fragile it defines

what life is truly;

day it does pass,

we must live fully.

A snap of a finger

and the day gone

becomes distant;

we move on along.

Angels immortal

tender they there

where heaven it

collides in the air.

Pure souls do cry,

heart they master

and see they view

see past a disaster.

Innocent young a

child somewhere

is laid to rest death

in our faces stares.

Cold is a phantom,

takes us up beyond.

Death it not spares

none even if strong.

Angel’s weep they

earth taste do they

see the world move

in sorrowful ways.

Cold phantom why

time brought you

I ask myself in song

what must one do?

Brief I spit at Death

for its cold phantom.

In brief life I dance

everyday of seven.

    1. Apologies for writing something so dark and sad so early on a Sunday. I hesitated in publishing it but it as of late has been on my mind.

        No apologies needed, my dear. All emotions are essential & must be felt, & as I’ve said before you have a wonderful talent of inflicting said emotions. Death strikes me differently now that I’ve lost someone so close to me, but as you said, time keeps passing.
