My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

December 8, 2010 “frozen”




the sky is frozen

so is the wintery air

the snow sticks it to the frozen ground

until it’s hard to breathe

the crystalline atmosphere

claws its way into my lungs

begrudgingly imparting life

to my icy veins

ignoring the gelid stains

the desolation pains

of the cold-black aloneness

that is my frozen heart

  1. You remind me of those cold winter days in the midwest….and relating to a broken heart is a fine touch to the poem…well done.
