Winter Depression

By Phantasmagoria





The leaves in the wind,
Tell stories of departure.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Autumn fades away, reaching
The start of winter...

    T.O.N. = Type O Negative. One of my all time fave bands. That song kind of discribes nature in a human way, like your poem. :)-
