Was frozen
Covered with a blanket of snow
That was cast upon the giant redwood forest.
But I was not like my beautiful surroundings
I was in a pocket of warmth from that fireplace
My abstract dreams of the first snow
That had became true
Like the flames of that fireplace that
Danced upon my thoughts that danced along
With the breaking of dawn

No im not a twilight fan ive never read the book's or have watched those movies. Im not one of those girls who freaks out over a fictional book. I actully dislike the book series alot. The only books i read about vampires is what anne rice writes now she is a writer.
And breaking dawn was about where i grew up and the comforts of home and the fire place that my mother and father made. This poem has nothing to do with vampires
