Against the wind
my back's been turned for good
I've found me

pull my lighter out
and smoke me
i'll unfreeze
and put you at ease
watch my water melt
that's what i thought i smelt
now hit me
hit me

get that high
you get me?
i'm saying what i mean
it gets harder every time
but this is how we get along

i'm frozen
now hit me.

I'm frozen....
Cameron Williams

A frigid night--
the frosty air.
I shiver in the wake..

My fragile, numb fingers
attempt to touch my face.

I'm frozen....

The crisp, biting wind
gusts violently toward me..

I exhale a visible breath
and trudge onward
over the frozen lake.

I'm so sick of counting all the minutes as I continue to go no where
Retracting my steps
Moment by moment in my head

What Ifs
Will never go away
But i want nothing more
than to leave this place

she was a frozen child

she was a frozen child
for all eternity.

her bones were strong
her skin still soft
her hair always silky

even though she was six feet underground.

The cold
is too close for comfort
The hot
is too far away for love.
The warmth
is never there
despite how hot
I turn the shower on
I'll always be frozen
from the outside in.

A little essence of vanilla
Icy lips
Blue ribbons.

Beauty that brought men to their knees,
Fury like cold rain.
The thunderstorm rages on.
Born in the break of dawn,
Raised by the snow.

Beware, warned the dwarf men.
Beware, screamed the wind.
Beware, sang the stars and moon, she preys on warmth.

Beware of frozen hearts.

I am standing on a sidewalk
staring out into a piece of time
sliced from the belly of a clock like a cake I can't help but feel was
baked for me
Snow holds its breath and rests on the hills that roll
then tumble into the city below
The lights, not winking, hold my gaze
blurring through ranges of focus like a lens that can't make up its mind,
a watercolor swirl of gold and orange that bleed black into the night sky
At the center,
there's a blonde haired
blue eyed
6 foot
pistol of a boy
swinging bats through the air so fast
the movement can't be distinguished as intentional

And I can't breathe

Any tremor of a muscle fiber from my being feels too violent a ripple to send bouncing off the corners of this moment
when the walls are made of braided ice

I won't break it

He's swinging metal bats through glass
and I can't breathe
I see every rainbow tinted splinter when it falls from his teeth
It's breaking and I feel this moment slipping
like my consciousness and the
exhale caught in a spiderweb at the base of my throat

It's breaking

He's swinging

I'm slipping

And the snow is even breathing now,
flexing and stretching her limbs around tree trunks that
pepper her complexion like freckles
He's swinging and stepping and his footprints are scars
These hills are the moon and his
eyes are like stars
I follow the length of this park's glistening torso,
catch the last seconds of the city's smoggy gaze;
misty and dripping like a canvas when it cries

I blink once

The sky winks back

The pistol unloads

A bullet now,
he's flying flying flying

One gasp and the glass cracks
We're back,
our drumbeat pulses
picking back up with the tick tock of clock hands while we
lick the snowy frosting from our lips

*but i am frozen*

being so near to you
i can sense how close you are
with every fiber of my being
     but i am frozen
i try to move against my pain
and reach out to you
to just step across the stream
     but i am frozen
beneath the surface
a river courses through my veins
begging for you, pleading
     but i am frozen
now i have so many dams
made of sharp ice
though naturally i flow freely
     but i am frozen
i want to be with you
i want to be in your arms
i want to be thawed
     but i am frozen

I actually cried writing this.

Because I hate myself for what they did to me.

I want to be thawed, but I'm having trouble melting the ice...
