Spring brings the melting of snow
And it also brings the melting of innocence
A cry pierces the laughter of your games.
“We cannot stay.”
You gape in bewilderment, unable to comprehend what’s been uttered
But why listen to them, surely this is a false alarm resounding?

Spring brings retreating cold
And it also brings a legion of retreating angels
You follow after the angels, as you all tumble from heaven
“Do not follow us.”
This only hardens your resolve, as you fly after them
Why listen to them, when you think your wings are strong enough?

Spring brings flowers
And it also brings blood
Blood that blooms like a tainted rose across their arms
“We deserve this.”
The blood threatens to drown you, but you don’t stop swimming
Why listen to them, when you believe you reach them?

Spring brings seeds, that can bring life
And it also brings pills, that can steal this life
Glinting like the bones of their victims on the counter
“All it takes is a couple doses.”
You run as fast as you can to rescue them, a race between life and death
Why listen to them, when you have to save them?

You run and run and run
Your wings tear, you legs break, the blood is 6 feet deep.
And even then, you push on
Yet, you only sink farther from the fading light of hope
You can’t rest, you can never rest
For if you close your eyes, Death may come to take all you’ve known
“They can’t die!!!” you scream to yourself in desperation
You struggle to push on
But you push too hard
And your mind finally collapses.

***

Autumn brings the fall of leaves
And it also brings the fall of kingdoms
The one home you made for yourself, a source of security
“Area purified.”
And in the time you had blinked your eyes, your kingdom had vanished
The fall severing your last futile grasp on yourself
But why listen to him, when you think you can rebuild?

Autumn brings the departure of birds
And it also brings the departure of friends
People who once admired the light in your eyes, now scared to look into them
“We’re still here.”
Beautiful words, yet your clouded mind can only see a false promise
Why listen to them when it seems that everyone always leaves!?

Autumn brings the changing of leaves’ colors
And it also brings the changing of your colors
From innocence to brokenness
Spring weakening you, only for losses and mistakes to break you
Your pain and grief like an uncontrollable fire
Words laced with the venom of rage, striking all those who dare come near
“Why listen to you when you don’t understand!?”

Autumn brings the first snowfall
Muffling your unsteady footsteps, as you try to disappear
Maybe this is for the best, or maybe you’re just a fool
The lines are too blurry for you to tell anymore.
And the mirror is too smudged to see yourself any longer.
“Why listen to them, when staying will only bring them pain?”

Spring brings the melting of snow
And it also brings the melting of innocence.

Winter brings the falling of snow
And it also brings the falling of white
White so pure, so clean, so soft
"There is still hope."
The coolness is felt against your skin
Your worries freeze and your mind slows down
Why give up when there's so much to fight for?
