The Winter Tree

I feel like the tree
The Winter tree with no leaves
Just an bare skeleton
Of a promise that once was
Empty now
Standing alone in the wind
Not even trying to shield myself
It’s cold
I don’t care
If a strong enough wind blows
I’ll fall
Ripping out what’s left
Of my shallow roots
And death will be a pleasure
For Spring is too far to reach
