The bleak heart of February

The Darkest heart of winter's chill
coughs up the hollow monstrous day,
its tendrils slithering to fill.

Rapacious, snaking, gasping gill,
in waters deep where wicked prey,
the Darkest heart of winter's chill.

Its teeth plunge, victim's cries so shrill
lurching, wheezing, rending play,
its tendrils slithering to fill.

The movement stops, it has its swill,
the nasty piper receives its pay,
the Darkest heart of winter's chill.

Vestigial quarry's heat distill,
blood's dulling red becoming gray,
its tendrils slithering to fill.

Hope to wed, its gleeful kill,
Valentine's, hip, hip hooray,
the Darkest heart of winter's chill,
its tendrils slithering to fill.
