Winter Dance

On the day that death took leave,
Leafs fell from amber covered trees,
When autumn turns to ice
And frigid winds bend,
Death will surely pay its price.
Its soul was sold
To turn back the cold
Gripping tightly, had no chance
Written in bloody romance
Consuming eternally, lips of red
Black mask to hide
Bitter dance of dread.
Selling souls
Compelling roles
Here you hide in masks of dye
Death will seek you
It will find you.
Lurching toward your end.

An old poem I wrote. I thought about editing it and adding to it, but I felt like that would take away from what I felt when I wrote it so long ago. This was my feelings, my emotions at that time and I would not have that changed just to make this a "better" poem. :)
