the near north
Winter finds me
Knee deep in
Heartache’s horror of
Holiday festivities
With
Loneliness
Creeping up on me
Singing songs of dreariness
Like, “I wanna go outside
…in the rain”
Coz this pain has taken hold of me
Got me slipping
S
...L
……I
………P
…………P
……………I
………………N
…………………G
Towards the dungeon of…insanity
As I pray for leniency
That I might keep her
Grasping…for someone to hold on to
To console me
Throughout the empty nights
So that I might…might (sigh)

Winter finds me
Caught up
In Christmas and Thanksgiving
Wishing
Tomorrow would come again
And this misery of mine
Would end
Singing the Blues
‘bout all times spent with you
wishing for one last dance
…one last chance at romance
denied me
Missing the tender sides of you
The warmth
The touch
The nearness of you
That got me through
Last winter’s coldness

Winter finds me…
Alone
Thinking of what could have been
As the New Year comes in
And all good things start
Anew
Still,
Thinking of my love for you

As winter finds me.

Ummm, reflective thoughts of what was, could be...often, this is a time of the year where many people experience such melancholy, due to the passing of a loved one, or the end of a love relationship... thanx for this piece. You've set the stage nicely...
