Hide Away

Hide Away

A Story by Kathryn Smith

And just like that


The leaves


Are gone


The burst of color


Dead


The warmth


Cold


The trees


Naked


And my body


Frozen




So hide me away


In the middle of sun


In warmth


Under blankets




Hide me away


In your arms


Until spring is here


So I can recover


And be free again



For the wind


Captures me


Decapitates me


Weakens me


Like a slap in the face


I cant breathe


Cant move


Cant smile


Huddle down


And hide me



We've a long way


To go


And I can feel myself



Fading

Hey Kat, beautifully written in your own style.

Many of us feel the same, and yet we also feel sorry for people that don't get to experience the beauty of each season. I think the Kat who can tame and teach two legged, toddling, terrors will make it through the winter :)

Think of the warm glow of yuletide and remember that spring brings new beginnings.

Lovely expression about our fear of surviving winter and indeed life itself. Told in a sad, pleading, forlorn voice.
