Cold Night

I am
In this world

And I'm cold

Looking at all the shattered glass

Broken picture frames
Chipped window paint

On the floor
I just want to run...

To Run away

In the cold night

Until my body freezes--Until I'm numb
Until I can't feel my emotions--

Trapping them inside
The smile upon my face--indescribable

I'm running away...

Forgetting all that is behind me

All for the moment
But I know the memories will be back soon...

I loved the flow of this poem. I think we have all been to that place where we were utterly alone. I know I have, at least. This reminded me of that time and how lucky I am to be in a better place now. Keep up the excellent work.
