January wolves stalk her shivering heart;
bitter ice-fangs sink into feverish skin.
Frost devours slowly, succinctly, shamelessly;
yet the howling tossed chains around her
paper-thin limbs and dragged her down.

Arctic icebound lips quivering,
silver eyelashes fluttering emptily,
alabaster fingertips reaching out;
frenzied yet frozen and fractured.

"Drowning," she whispers in a winter song,
and places her mouth upon snow-dusted fur.
"Blood freezing in these frostbitten veins."

And then the pack of aurorean wolves bolt away,
leaving her smiling in the blizzard of humanity.

Freedom.
I like this. I like it a lot.

It just came to me in the midst of everyone panicking during school because we're going to be getting a major blizzard. We're getting out at eleven. In half an hour. Fuck yeah it's nap time all afternoon.

But I freaking like this.

And now that I've read it over, I know why I wrote it, and how it relates to me.

I just wish my writer's block would go away when I want to write stories rather than crappy poetry.

((I really like this too~ It reminds me of our own winter storm over here. So much shoveling was done today.... And I was not amused with the sudden amount of snow. Maybe back in December or January, but it's nearly March... It really shows how messed up the world truly is.))

Yep. It wasn't too bad. It's pretty normal for the Midwest, anyway.

Thanks!

At least they make you guys stay inside when a storm comes, but here we get dust, fucking dust everywhere, and no one gives a shit you have to walk home and come in looking like Sandy, and if you have asthma like me, that ain't fucking fun, but whateves living in a desert your whole life, I guess your heart becomes the dust itself. Anyway great poem, and they aren't crappy they're better than anything I've written. Writers block will pass over you, don't worry, hell I'll even take it off you hands, you need to write man you got talent.

Well that dust heart sentence was depressing. It would make a great analogy in a poem though.

It'll be funny when you get hit with so many Ideas and loads of enthusiasm, that you'll fall over your bed/ chair or wherever you work...
