Breaking Cold

Your cries,

chills in the night,

the wind breaks,

every possible hope,

the ice falls,

slides down your throat,

it cuts deep,

blood freezes there,

you try to create heat,

by rubbing your hands together,

but nothing works,

loss of breath,

it’s hard to breathe,

the cold is overwhelming,

it breaks your heart,

but you keep going,

I am the only thing,

that is heat,

hold me tightly,

and you will not die.
