Something told me, as I was laying in my bed studying for a test tomorrow, that there was something I needed to do on the computer.
I stopped. I went down stairs, and I logged on here. I didn't do anything yet, click any buttons...I opened a new tab and played a song on youtube.
After I got it to play, and the sound just perfectly right. I began to...explore around a bit. Hitting up the discussion boards. Seeing a post from you. Made me heart feel, different than what it has lately.
Than I posted "hi" and checked to see who was online; no one. I saw a new poem from you, and I just had to go read it.
I'm addicted to your poetry as is anyways. So, I just knew I'd like it.
The title caught my attention even more. But, before I started reading I noticed that I was freezing. Our heat broke. So ... we have no warmth aside from the million layers of clothes we put on.
I started reading.
Reading through each stanza, I got warmer and warmer.
At the end, I froze. Completely.
I almost started to cry. But, as mentioned in the poem, I held those babies back.
Amber, the poem was fabulous. Everything was on point. I loved the way you explained it. The imagery was fantastic, and I could actually picture everything in my head like a slide show.
