Winter Bites

I saw a tree that dreamed
As it swayed in shadowed lament
I smelt it’s scent

As it echoed through the woods
It twisted to obstinate pain
But only In order to gain
A moment in time

I’ve seen a baby that cries
Within, mucus, laughter but thrives
Within these memories of hives
That smile to captured pain and eyes
Within this refrain
I wish to find again
A life I lost
How much it must have caused
To live a day and linger
Just that little longer
To touch a finger
Feel and love
Without the glove
Without the hunger

I fed a man that dribbled
, without the taste

I saw him without a face
Welcome to this human race

I’ve see a country going to waste
I have seen myself within distaste
I saw bombs in my tooth paste
I saw a world that’s going untraced
I saw myself today
