Never go away, Oh! Summer
For Winter is so cold and white
Like hollowed bones that rattle
In my ribcage trying to contain
A suffering heart, ready to burst
In grief of another lonely night!
Dark sheets of icy rain fall on
Shrunken shoulders, bent in pain
Sadness and tears unrestrained
Bring forth whispers of your name
Frigid gusts carry the lament afar;
Turbulent whirlwinds of lost hope
Reach the horizon; a storm is born!
