crystallineCold seeps into my bones
Black as death’s shadow
The frenzied rush of life
Drowned in so much static
A creeping mortification
Balanced on a razor’s edge
Before falling to earth
As solid as concrete
And shedding no tears
Dressed in this rusty halo
Carved out of stardust
Married to a night
That’s never ending
In a world made of ice
Shattered by memory
Bereft of pure emotion
Breath paused in midair
Mingling with the shards
Of so many broken dreams
That always float away
Before the great thaw.
