Chills dance along my skin,
As I scrunch up my arms,
Trying desperately to contain
Any heat

The wind gently brushes,
Along my shivering body,
Chilling to
The bone

Without a warm snug home,
I’m a vulnerable blade of grass,
Waiting to be swept

The winds quicken,
Whipping against my limp body,
Creeping inside
My soul

The blade of grass,
Slowly, quietly gets swept away,
In a cold gust
Of wind

Absolutely love this poem; its FLOODING with imagery and full of emotion, I can really feel the effort put into it and i think repeating the title at the end adds alot of emphasis. A great writer! :)
