Winter has Waged War
kripto

A second snow storm brewing
 1
matching the intensity of the
 2
the one outside
 3
However this one stays within the confides of our arms
 4
 
 
limited to the surface of our skin
 5
building up and spreading
 6
It slowly encompasses all we have to offer
 7
As I get lost in this blizzard
 8
 
 
The storm decreases the temperature outside
 9
Further more eliminating the humidity in the air
 10
I cry, but can not produce tears
 11
for I no longer have water in my eyes
 12
Almost like a dead snowman, I stand melancholy and dry
 13
 
 
As I begin to notice a loss of feeling
 14
in my fingertips, slowly spreading down my hands
 15
A gust of wind blows me down
 16
As nature scores a strike
 17
 
 
Victory might be owned by winter on this frightful day
 18
But I know a truth that seems never to decay
 19
That my chances are greater to withstand such a formidable foe
 20
For I live all twelve months a year he only lives for four
 21
 
 
I will not let you kill me, I shall put up a fight
 22
I ran to shelter and blasted heat
 23
as I saw the cold wind die
 24
I launched the missiles and hoped to God
 25
 
 
He would give me his divine right
 26
and with his blessing survive the stride
 27
successfully throughout the night
 28
But my fingers blue, and insides grey
 29
I see that Ive been beat
 30
 
 
the old wind says that the new one will be worse
 31
As the new one comes, fulfilling the old ones wise and stupid curse
 32
All we do is bundle up in an attempt to hide away
 33
sheltered from this weather, So then indoors is where we stay

You will get your chance at
blueballin' the snow with grey clouds

Gusts of resin keep
mountains groomed,
Legs take your side ol' windy.
