Frost covered lips against my own as I dream a ghost in my home
A dark shadow lingers still on the corner outside my window
Whispers of my name wakes me up in the middle of the night
I remember a moment years ago of a figure in the snow
Why it didn't take me then I do not know
But it has returned to claim what it deems its possession
And I won't be able to escape in the fire once more

Black haunting eyes stare straight into mine
Cold touch of fingers caressing my face
Frost on my lips as I was kissed

An ordeal best forgotten as the cold affecting my brain
A hallucination from the cold making my body numb
Locked away in a far place in my memory
As an instant of temporary insanity

But today something strange attached itself to my person
In the corner of my eye a figure lingers in shadow
But no one else seems to notice my own distractions
In my rooms the cold persist even with the heat on

A mist curling around my body but I see nothing
A hand on my arm but I only feel the coldness
Gazing out my window I see those eyes
And I hide under the sheets like a child

Resisting the urge to constantly look over my shoulders
I shiver with dread as the days continue to pass me by

But tonight it has come for me after all these years
In my bed as it lays over me as a cloth of mist
But tonight it has come to restate its claim on me
In my bed it leaves me covered in a layer of frost

I remember a moment years ago of a figure in the snow
Why it didn't take me then I do not know
But it has returned to claim what it deems its possession
And I can't escape
