The Winter's WatcherTHE WINTER'S WATCHERThe Winter's Watcher by Koahara
Why is it, O wolf of winter,
That you cry so eager tonight?
Do you hide, my blackest sinner,

Darkest raven, done is your deed.
Rest now, dear death’s tired lover;
Awake at dawn, such is your creed.
You must find flesh of another.

Something within me, however, wished for death not to take you. A selfishness burned in my heart; I wanted death to leave you for me.
