Scalding water
burning skin
redness rising to the top

Chill throughout
permeate from
deep within the bones

Bumps rising
refusing to dissipate
raging red skin

Too hot to continue
but nothing to stop
the unquenchable cold

Towel of supposed warmth
covering the crimson
fade the signs away

Iciness steaming
cover up in tears
disguise the cold for wet
