Warmth amidst surrounding cold is the bodies’ best pacifier,
Like when the truth comes out of a stone-cold liar,

Sensation runs through your veins like coffee through a straw,
The ora of energy that surrounds you is the brightest you ever saw.

Because when you do, depression and numbness takes hold,

Your mind and body beg for a touch, a whisper, even a loving glance,
But another cold breeze of harsh words tells you there’s no chance.

Affection allows being a slave to be bearable,
But all the abuse leaves your heart tear able.
