A cold presence slides over you
The room darkens and gloom consumes you
You turn and see him
Your stomach turns as you gaze into a pair of icy blue eyes
His mind like a maze of mirrors
His soul lost and hungry
He is silently screaming
His razor sharp features frown for his emptiness
Hunger engulfs his heart
Dungeon dark hair sits flat, depressed
He seems to be unfounded
The cry for help is hidden as people walk by
You shiver as you get closer
Snow and hail fill the distance between you
He looks lost as the snow billows get higher and higher
You reach out to try to melt the bitter freezing
But the ice bites you hard and lightning flashes
Yet you so badly want to comfort, to help
You wait and wait
The snow stays
You are forced to turn away

The author's comments:
This poem is about an old friend who I loved incredibly. I was inspired by him, but also by a quote from Taylor Swift's song, "Cold As You." It says, "You put up walls and paint them all a shade of gray. And I stood there loving you and wished them all away." Sometimes you have to let people go. Eventually, I found freedom.
