Cold   White  Prison





It  begins  so  Innocently, a  welcome  sight  for  many, yet  I
Feel  tears  sting  my  eyes  as  I  stand  at  the  window
Gazing  at  the  first  flakes  falling  from  a  charcoal  sky,  
Drifting  silently  past  barren  trees, Falling  silently  to  the  ground


Snow  has  always  been  an  enemy  to  me, Ironic, how
Very  fragile  a  snow  flake  is, how  quickly  it  can
Vanish, cupped  in  your  hand, Yet  when  Innumerable
Numbers  of  them  join  forces  with  the  wind...


Avalanches, weather  related  auto  accidents, loss  of
Power, roofs  caving  in, Impassable  roads, store  shelves
Empty, Skiing  deaths, the  homeless  freezing, But  I'm  OK
Locked  inside  watching, My  white  Prison  fall  from  the  sky.
