Cold

I stand alone

With the wind

Cold behind me

 

I shield as best I can

Those who stand before

While all my clothes are torn

 

I feed by the light of the fire

As much as my heart can hold

Cradle them with all the love in the world

 

I stand alone

With the wind

Cold behind me

 

Ice cuts at me

Bleeds me

Turns my life to blue

 

I smile through and through

Tears streaming

Freeze it fast

 

I stand alone

With the wind

Cold behind me.

Hmmm yes it does....so you picked up on part of it....<br />
lol but it's okay, poetry is subjective to the reader. I take no offense. ;)

ahh this particular one came after an argument with one of my family outside of my household. It was a hurtful experience. thank you.

I loved this but it may be one of the saddest poems I have read in a long while. I am so sorry for your pain.
