Eyes that wander in the flakes of the snow
Trying to weave those lost memories
Not tired but helplessly I stand
all alone in this cold
Smile melting like the snow
Here I stand after the miles
Don’t know if I’m lost, these trees don’t speak to me
The footprints I’m leaving behind
I’m scared they’ll be erased by the hands of the clock…
Winter and Spring; like you & me
that can never meet even if we try…..
They say love is in the air
But why do I feel breathless?
All of our withered memories,
I’m burying them in this snow
All I can feel is emptiness, so heavy
Now music remains the only thing I love
We met in the winter, but it’s winter again
But this time with 𝙀𝙥𝙞𝙥𝙝𝙖𝙣𝙮, 𝙇𝙤𝙫𝙚 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧𝙨𝙚𝙡𝙛, and 𝟮!𝟯!
Music by BTS that has healed me
All through the dark winter and snowstorms
To my winter who might never return
Your Spring is now blooming from the bosom
With the smiles of BTS and ARMY
My voiceless echo finally found a cheerful destiny
Were you ever lost in the sight of beautiful snow flakes embellishing the city?
Or maybe it brought back an old sorrow-filled chapter that you promised to bury in that snow. That’s exactly the idea realm of this little piece. Winter has always captivated me. Wrapped in your furry-warm coat, it’s healing to watch the sights of winter. As days passed, somehow I felt something missing in the puzzle of my life; maybe lost in thoughts or lost happiness. Winter seemed normal to me; like there was nothing special. And after all such gloomy days, I finally found BTS in the winter of 2019! It was honestly a life-changing experience. I felt like everything was falling in place and found more than what I lost; 7 beautiful souls and a loving family💜. This draft throws light on such a story-line, where the character is trying to appreciate the charm of winter and is also recollecting some sad memories. But soon she finds herself, she finds happiness and discovers the world of BTS and ARMY.
