The Thaw


What I would give to melt you,
                  to feel the hard cold
         give way to water droplets,
                  to fluid skin.  

      First in the shape of my hands on your shoulders,
               the shape of my hands on your cheeks,
               and then a shudder --
glass sheets will fragment and
                               fall 
                                    from
                                         you.  

The Earth tilts, winter slipping across
   the hazy blue to the other pole
   and you are warm.  
 
Then as
your thawed blood begins
                         to flow
you will reach to me warm  and
                               lean
                                    to
                                       kiss,

but now I am frozen.

  1. Awww, that poem was so uplifting… almost. And then sad. Quite nice, though.

    This is Colin, by the way. I thought I’d give the livejournal a shot. I’m still figuring out how it works, though, so there’s not a whole lot there yet. Mind if I add you as a friend?

    • sweet! Go right ahead and add me. It was a pain in the ass for me to ask around and figure out how it works, so I don’t know how much I can help. You’ll get addicted though. It’s like myspace or facebook except you get to actually say something.

      I’ll add you as a friend and then you’ll have access to my friends-only entries.

      • Awesome! Great, like I need another thing to be addicted to, since I’m doing so well keeping up with homework as it is (insert sarcasm). Should be fun. And friends-only, eh? Sounds dirty or something ;). Thanks for the add.
