The Embrace

Heavy fog
hugs you close to the mountain.
Such cold arms.
It swells around
your every step,
quieting the world around.
You, the fog, and nothing.

Stop this madness,
sleep forever!
this blanket of mist begs.

You resist,
though your every molecule
wants to rest under
lonely clouds.

This can’t be,
your freezing bones are aching,
urging you to abandon the mountain
and its accompanying fog.

Caught between desires,
hot tears slip away,
landing softly on the leaves below.
With a soft goodbye
you turn and run away.
