You Are Cold (C.B.#12)

“You are cold,” says he who has sewn
in me
that which is his own and winters’.
Winter that unfurls sinful men
from its sorrowful gaze.

Dare to pull humanity
from the depths of the blizzard you’ve grown.
Seeking the heart you froze,
and tore away with hands of stone.
You may call me cold, Frankenstein.
But you created me
In your likeness.

@J.M.daCruz This is awesome. It's short but conveys emotion. The use of narration is a great tactic to convey this emotion. Check some of my stuff out too!

Oooo Frankenstein's monster! I love the way you compared the two. Your creator...Frankenstein. Like your mom or dad, or someone close enough to affect your personality?

This poem is like one giant burn to who've ever said that you're a cold person.

I'm in love with the way you communicate things, it's like an addiction
