Out of the Snow

Out Of The Snow

The mistake


My parents made
A mistake.
They left me at home
Alone
With nothing to do
Nothing but to wait.
The snow slowly
Building up to a height
Where I can't even see out the windows.
The snow so blindingly white
That I can’t even look at it.
The snowy view
[Quarantining]
me
From the rest of the
world.
If my parents hadn't left me here
Alone.
Then this would be fun.
We would play board games together,
In the dwindling light
Or read stories and talk around the fire.
Instead, they had to go on that
stupid business trip to who knows where
They never have made such a
Horrible
terrible
mistake.

Horror

My eyes are playing
Tricks on
Me.
Giving me
Hopes
And
Horrors.
I will
Never
Ever
See my parents
Again.
Or
That they will be there any
S`
E
C
O
N
D.
But the time
keeps ticking
By and I keep
Leaning
Towards the
Earlier
Hopelessness and darkness

Darkness

The snow is building higher
Till the room is dark at noon,
The moon won't shine tonight for sure
Not in the darkness of my
Solitary
Room
now my prison.
With nothing to do
The darkness consumes me until I am
Nothing
Nothing but a spark of hope that
my parents will be back soon.
And even
That
Is dwindling as
The
Hours
pass
Themselves
By.
As my
Eyes
S l o w l y
Droop.

UGH!

I wake up
Sunday morning and I feel
Horrendous
Nothing to do
The cold seeping through my
Bones
The blanket frozen
Stiff as a board
All it does is make me colder

The return

I wake with a
Start
To
The sound of an engine roaring
My parents are finally here
And they have news
School has been canceled for the week.
We walk outside to assess the damage and what we saw
was both demonic and angelic
The snow blanketing everything
The power lines and the houses
The schools and the rivers
Making everything
A pretty white.
But also ruining
The things we used
To survive.
The snow even crept into the house during the night.
Destroying everything in its path
People say that will be
The biggest storm this winter
but I know
The snow
Will
Return.
Even though
Some people want big snow SToRms
I love small
Ones
But I hate
LARGE

Storms

News

We heard that some people were caught
outside
During the storm and
Some people FroZe to
Death.
That would be absolutely horrible
I am glad that I was inside
When the storm rolled in or else
I could have been one of those people.
Alone and frozen to death.
That would have been me if
I hadn’t fetched wood
The day before this
crazy snow storm
Since I would have had to gather it during
THE STORM
