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 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.

Like it Empty?

Thank you Who...I'm glad you caught my chill :D I will.

Sorry, no, I meant each word evokes so much pain... it's achingly beautiful
