Winter Hearts



This world is harsh,
leaving us abandoned
with this winter in our hearts,
broken souls floundering,
trapped in icy fear
of the demons and shadows
that linger here
We are caught,
snagged in a web
that keeps holding us down,
the cold weight on our chests
stealing away our breath

And, yet…
still we fight,
pushing through this darkness
to find the light
