Spoiler Winter of the Mind
Cold are the days where I carry no hope,
The fire in my heart replaced with unyielding ice,
Chilling my blood and cracking the skin,
Lonely are the nights where people bring me no joy,
Causing me to yearn for even a glimmer of kindness,
But the fear of pain stays my tongue,
Dark is the world in this never ending season,
All the light choked out by clouds of envy,
The last reminders of what had been clinging to the dead tree's,
Enveloped I am in this cutting blizzard,
Being with others yet never a part of them,
Always separated by the chill that followed the suns absence,
Mournful are the times I see the past,
What could have been sketched out in every scar we left,
And as always I am left to wonder which of us brought about this winter
Spoiler Winter is Coming
Cold air approaches,
Trees now bare.
Once vibrant world,
Now looks scarce.
Soon comes snow.
World dresses white.
Oh, how calming!
A pleasant sight!
Holidays are coming.
Christmastime is near.
Time for presents.
Time for cheer.
Family gatherings galore.
Memories are made.
Cookies are baked,
Holiday music played.
Christmas is over,
It’s New Years.
Start over anew.
Vanquish your fears.
Winter only comes
Once a year.
Cherish it now.
Because it’s here.
Spoiler Winter in One PieceThe snow is thick on Sunnys deck and everyone's inside
This feels like home !
Says Chopper while he's jumping in delight
It sure is cold, and up ahead we barely see a thing
Even the Log Pose seems confused, and night is sure to bring
More dangers if we sail like this, so we should stop and think
Says Nami while she slowly sips from her hot chocolate drink
It's SUPER ! If you're asking me
Now i have so much ice
It's perfect with my Cola and it comes at zero price
If you guys want i'll share a bit, cuz i'm just SUPER NICE !
Says Franky while he drinks his coke with eight small cubes of ice
I've heard that winter spirits come when it's so cold outside
It's said those take a maidens shape, sometimes in clothes of bride
And take the warmth of men, who dazzled by their bright
Foolish enough ignore the cold and dare to step outside
Says Robin while reading a book next to a candles light
A maidens shape? Dressed as a bride ?
Is this true Robin-chwan ?!
So if i go outside i'll find this beauty shining bright ?
I've finished baking cookies so i'll go and try my luck !
Says Sanji while he grabs a coat and runs out in the night
Hey S*hitty Cook, didn't you hear how dangerous those are ?
I bet this spirits could be strong, might be good for a spar
I'll cut them down since i'm so bored, and almost out of booze
One thing is sure, to fairy tales i'm not about to lose !
Says Zoro as he follows up on Sanjis trails on foot
I wonder if this spirit lady, even if cold as ice
Would show me the panties she wears
If i would ask her nice !
Says Brook, and then he "Yohohos" and follows them outside
Well i'm not interested in those
No sir, i'll stay inside !
It's nice and warm, and much more safe
Not that i'm scared to fight !
My back's just sensitive to cold, in here i'll be alright !
Says Usopp while he tries to hide away of windows sight
Come on now guys we got to see this ice cream spirits to !
We have to catch a bunch of them, maybe like ten will do
I hope they come in different flavors, maybe one tastes like meat !
Says Luffy, with his eyes so bright he jumps up from his seat
And grabs Chopper and Usopp to without missing a beat
Reluctant, Nami and Robin talk and in the end decide
Better than let them all get lost, to follow them outside
Franky says "Super ! Count on me !" and follows close behind
And what they see is all of them looking up in the sky
What's that ? Everyone yelled at once
The spirit rides a sleigh ?
That is no maiden ! Sanji says
I'll make that fat guy pay !
Hey look there guys, a bunch of Choppers !
Ones nose is glowing red !
And the fat one said "Yohoho"
Brook is that guy your friend ?
Asked Luffy while grinding his teeth
So rude, he already left !
Let's all just go inside and eat the cookies Sanji made
Even if spirits were around that guy scared them away
It's just to cold to stay out here, we also need some rest
Said Nami and they all agreed that's probably for the best
They walked inside and what they found was a surprise for all
A Kitchen Knife, a Violin, a giant pack of scrolls,
A history book, some juicy meat and cotton candy to,
More booze, and cola, and a shirt.
Usopp said "That's for me !"
And showed them all the text on front
"Brave warrior of the sea "
Spoiler UntitledSnow is on my mind now
So I sleep there
Far from creeping, naked twigs
And far from shivering, naked grass
Days of warmth and giving?
Shielding words picked
over the bare, real outside of
Once there was, in winter cold
A snowman built by young and old.
His name was Humphrey, his body strong,
So he stood all winter long.
On Christmas, Humphrey even got a wife,
And he was happy with his life.
When spring came, his wife soon died,
And Humphrey shivered, Humphrey cried.
He saw his fate just close ahead,
and upon March, he was just mad.
He saw the sun, he felt the light,
He melted, yet he could not fight.
This was sorry Humphrey’s tale,
Of love and life so sadly frail,
That the sun alone could make it bend -
This poem has no happy end.
Voting closes in one week.
