Whiteout

by Kitty Cat Lady   Oct 23, 2017


Icy extremities chill chambers
That once they set alight
Warmth frigidly denied
Death by unrequited exposure

Shivers jangle the nerves
That once reverberated fire
A hypothermic heart
Numbs frostbitten dreams

An igloo defence with icicle spikes
That once love could thaw
An avalanche of regret
Frozen by your blizzard.

*** This is very different to my usual style and I really welcome your feedback :-) =^.^=

    Kitty I missed this one...first of all, great title here. As Milly puts it, everything written here is so cold I could freeze. This has excellently expressed the frozen heart you speak of...and all the cold things sorrounding it. I hope and believe love can still thaw it! Lovely.

    Dynamic visuals and bbbrrrrr I feel cold just reading it. Certainly an excellent winter piece that has me scrambling for a nice warm log fire. Well done on being brave and trying a different style. It worked. Milly x

    Your first attempt is far far far better than my 9 attempts.
    So just keep on writing and bring more surprises for us.
