Hot and Cold

Loosely Based On

I reach out my hand to you

Grazing your arm against it

Maybe for the very last time.

I’m so envious of the warmth

You exude when my flesh has

Become so frostbitten in this

Bitterly cold and lonely season.

How can you be so temperate  

While I stand here freezing

In this harsh weather that is

So unforgiving and unrelenting?

My cheeks are frozen in a smile,

A front concealing the heat I have

For you so you may not see it again.
