A Winter's Tale
You left me smitten, on a winter's night
Your touch on my lips like a frostbite
I felt you tapping my shoulder blade
And much like music, you made
your fingers run wild,
I laughed and cried like a child.
You drank the tears off my cheek,
And in a haze I heard you speak
of mountains to cross, promises to keep;
Of miles to go before we sleep.
Then inch by inch you stroke each vein
Pulled on my heartstrings and gained
Engulfed by beauty I let my spirit free
Detached myself from reality.
Wore my guard down, bared my skin
Willingly, I gave in to lust; hoping,
you'd see my scars and embrace me.
But you left me cold, on the winter's night,
Bare and lost, without a fight,
But this time, my tears dried.
