In the cold of fear, I stand alone.
I stand in the dark and cry.
With naught but a flimsy ray of hope,
I wonder when I'll die.
I walk along roads slicked with ice.
I stumble, and I crawl.
I find myself lost in the wind,
and shudder as I fall.
But still some ice is comfort to me,
a constant to keep my mind.
The timeless freeze is friend to me
when none are there to find.
This dragon menace snarls at me,
Yet never will it bite.
Instead it shields my shivering form
and grants me a ray of light.
Huddled beneath her frosty wings,
I love rather than mourn.
The dragon shields the phoenix young
until it is reborn.


The author's comments:
This poem is only one part of a two-piece work of art. The other portion is actually an ink drawing, titled as "Frost and Fire" also. I'll try to have a link up ASAP, but in the meantime, look for it on my profile.

Would you like a side of epic with that fail?

I love it as much as I love the artwork. Can you look at some of my work? I would love your opinion. :)

How odd. I can't think of why it wouldn't let you comment.Thankyou for your encouragement, I appreciate it. I've been posting things recently, if you're interested, though they haven't been cleared by the site staff as of yet. I expect they'll be posted in a day or two, however. Maybe check back in awhile? I'm fairly certain I'll have doubled the amount of work I have displayed onto this site.

I love the last lines...and such talented artwork as well! I looked at your art, but for some reason it wouldn't let me comment. Your Frost and Fire picture is...amazing!

(Poet) If anyone knows how to get rid of that picture that's up with the poem, I'd appreciate the tip. I accidently clicked it when I posted this, I think. Nothing wrong with the picture, it just has nothing to do with the poem at all.
