Hands graze over the tall grass
Bent over by the autumn gusts
It snaps with the sting of the coming bitter winds
The last of the light falls behind snowy peaks
The hues in the sky blaze bright and then die
But I can’t see the beauty
What to push it far from me
I can’t feel the warmth
I want cold in my bones

Hollow thing

Everyone says it gets better
You’ll be stronger and more the wise
A trip to the bottom happens to us all
All I need is a push to get me through the wall
But I’ll bide my time this winter
In the quiet and the cold
And I’ll keep silent my wonder
And I’ll bury it in the snow

Summer took my happiness
She wrapped it in her wings
She laughed then stole away
and left this hollow thing
It’s too hard to loose in summer
the pain burns into the skin
So I’ll hold it to the bitter end
Till she comes again
