Ahhh! I love this poem, your beginning, word choice, ending, everything.
Would it be easier if I turned into a statue?
^^^ This sent me reeling for a bit in my mind, as I've asked myself the very same question before, under different circumstances. The feeling of being frozen, or stuck outside in the cold, hit me very strongly; I like to BE in the poems I read, and this so took me there. :)
I wish I had the ability to nominate, I would this poem. I LOVE this. The ending of course is your powerhouse piece.. you have a beautiful knack for ending poetry and it makes me jealous :) I will try to be more specific, am at work now and can't be long! Just wanted you to know how much I adore this poem!
