Home: Poetry: Emily Cox: O Come and Comfort

O come and comfort
Soft blanket
And warm my heart
So perfect and untouched
Your diamonds glitter
Illuminated by the street light
I watch as you grow
Faster at times, sadly slower at others
Soon your gaudy exterior melts away
Leaving only black bones
Building blocks of existence
From that foundation
New life springs
A sweer aura about you
Brings the hope of re-birth
It starts slowly
Almost undetectable
Then shoots up
Almost out of nowhere
Blooming
You pull away
Reaching higher and higher
Always fighting for more
You wrinkle
Your colors like fire
Suddenly
Fire is extinguished
Despair for you
Spreads like the plague
The blanket again falls
Comforting blanket
Artificial gems
You are at peace once again
