It's cold
I can see my breath
It floats away from me
Hangs in the air above my head
I watch as it rises
Becoming nothing
I am becoming nothing
Floating away from reality
Like wisps of smoke
Like winter's breath
It's so cold
It is settling in my bones
I can feel the icy claw
Digging its way through my marrow
Rendering my joints immobile
I am forced to lay here
Staring up at the moon
It's so bright it is blinding
It shouldn't be this cold
But it is
And that's when I see him
His hair is a glowing silver
His eyes electric blue
His skin is pale as the snow
That's surrounding me
He is the most handsome man I have ever seen
No, he is beautiful
"Come with me."
He says the words
Yet his mouth never moves
He speaks into my mind
"Come with me."
He reaches out his frostbitten hand
I want to reach up and take it
But something is urging against it
Something, alive, inside me
Is screaming don't do it
I stare into those electric blue eyes
And I love them
I love the frozen ghost hovering above me
Telling me to let go
Waiting to take me from here
I begin to reach for his hand
But his smile is sinister
Even though his voice is smooth
"Come with me."
He is so beautiful
Like an angel with the soul of a demon
He calls to me again
"Come with me."
My fingertips are touching his
They are colder than the ground on which I lie
My mind hollers and I pull my hand away
I don't mean to but I can't help it
His face twist with anger
He isn't beautiful now
The eyes glow with blue fire
He blows frigid air on my skin
"You'll be sorry!"
He hisses
Then he is gone
And I am left in the frozen cold
It is seeping into my marrow
Stealing away my life
But my mind is alive
It is speaking to me
"Hold on dear.
Spring will come."
