Random Thoughts

Winter (Lost You To)

And as I lay sleepless
I thought I had lost you
I felt I had nothing
One and one no more two

My life would lack flavor
All my dreams black and white
The air could not heal me
Winter sun cold and dry

My days would be hollow
And the nights tear me through
The simplest of habits
Would remind me of you

Your smile it would haunt me
In mirrors of my mind
Your eyes they'd torment me
I'd have nowhere to hide

No refuge to run to
And no place to retreat
Where you had not loved me
I can't face this defeat

And as I lay shaking
And sweating out the night
I knew I had nothing
You'd given up the fight

On 3/15/18 I developed a third person interpretation I call Winter (Lost You Two).
I also played around with a second person perspective from 4/14/18.
