A Cold Embrace

A Cold Embrace long poem

To be lost at sea in a cold and lonely dark….

Drawn down into the icy, dark deep
Engulfed within the bosom
Of a cold, crushing sleep
Feel the cold embrace
A chilling kiss to your face

See the light from above
Fade slowly from view
From the dawn of the day
From the morning dew
As the writhing waters welcome you
To their icy womb
A desolate tomb

And as the colour fades
And the night grows deep
As you silently slip
Into that long dark sleep

As you leave behind
A life you once knew
A cold truth hits you
Through and through

To fight is futile
There is no release
To accept, to welcome
To embrace the peace

A shuddering sigh
As the cold fills your core
You surrender yourself
To this cold hearted whore

And the seas roll on
In their solemn advance
Any and all who care to challenge
Or chance

For the cruel icy depths
Are alive with lost souls
A cold crushing tomb
The buoys bell now tolls.
