Read Poem: DEADLY EMBRACE by Debby Jones

Snow crackling beneath my feet

like stepping on dry bones.

A slippery playground

Of cold, dead earth;

I feel so far from home.

The wind howls its eerie lament

It gnaws at my face;

a hungry fiend with hands

as cold as Death’s embrace.

Each step brings me farther and farther;

yet sets my teeth on edge.

My journey seems never ending;

as the frost bites at my flesh.

No spring, nor summer shall I meet again;

For the cold wind howls my name.

The beast rages forth.

There’s no turning back.

I fear my time hath came.

It wraps its hands

around my neck

and takes my breath away.
