Wrath of Winter

Slices of ice carved from bone
They rasp against the wind, hissing
Cursing the heat lost within

Water that flowed like sanguine wine
Hardens into a soul thief, a lifeless ruby
Devoid of its luster but weighs infinitely more

Lust infused heart no longer pounds
Cracked and crumbling, an ancient tomb
Fossilized hope weeps at its core
