Through The Snow
‘Straight’ A student once,
A girl with dreams, girl with chance;
Chance of doing something great
Then a puppet with puppet’s fate.
Once in charge, once in control,
A girl with heart, girl with soul.
Sold herself to get a fix,
For something instant, something quick.
Started off with just a puff,
Then she knew she’d had enough.
A little later she met someone,
Made her laugh, have some fun.
He was on the trip before;
Now he had someone to soar
With open arms and dreams ahead,
Joined together, their habits fed.
They took a journey, rode together,
Through the snow for hell and leather;
They skied the slopes, down they went,
Destination not heaven bent.
For many seasons, the snow went on,
They wished so hard it would be gone.
They tried in vein to clear the snow,
Did not work – on with the show.
What started out, just as fun,
Soon took hold, now number one.
The blizzard blew, was blowing strong,
The journey hardened, miles were long.
They both knew, that change must come,
Or forever, they’d be undone.
It was hard, they missed their kicks,
Missed their snowman, missed their fix.
As time went by, they stayed together,
Bonds so strong, unbroken, never.
Against all odds, they stood the test
Of time immortal, deprived of rest –
Until such time as they had learnt
Lessons well, flames unburnt.
Universally sanctioned, arm in arm,
Gods did soften and free from harm.
It did not matter, had to be,
Star crossed lovers destiny;
But unlike Romeo, and Juliet
It was good that these two met.
Grim Reaper met the Cobra Queen,
She knew him, had known he’d been,
Her Karmic Prince for all of time,
Her main player, in her cosmic mime.
Lives interwoven, eternally linked,
Chained in melody, not chains that chinked.
United in a timeless love,
Gods just playing them, from above.
Before the end, the slope got steeper
For Cobra Queen and Grim Reaper,
But now they’re sorted, squeaky clean
Only God knows, what might have been.
