Winter can never reach Spring

Spring
Always inviting
Forever there to bring a stop to the cold
Scent mesmerizing, warmth intoxicating
Always wanted, always wished for

Winter
Always wished away
Tries to hold on, tries to steal the warmth
Always whisked away by the warmth of Spring
But always there

Wanting what it can't have
Grasping what can't be reached
Winter
A weapon in the night
Spring
A shield in the light

Always so near
But always destined to be apart

Hades and Persephone
The king of the underworld The daughter of life His eyes dark cold and icy Hers light and airy Light flickers through Enhancing her innocence Darkness surrounds him Shielding his heart What happens when these two cross?

Can happiness reside where light cannot? or will it slowly flicker away until it is no more and give into the darkness around her? They say even the smallest bit of light Will shine in the darkness Until it finally gives in and flickers away S

in the distance, fading
i never said my goodbyes, one rainy night i climbed out of my window, out into rain puddles, pine trees and songs. the night slowly froze everything, ice humming its way into my lungs, skies breathing snow. when you wake up tomorrow frost will cover the tree branches and i will be gone.
I was inspired by this picture [link]

Before I knew the inspiration for the artist, I saw it as the barren Winter, always longing the heat of the Spring. So close, yet so far.
