Poetry: Cold Heart

Kennedi Lulloff, Student Contributor

A cold heart seems hard to crack

how do you get beneath the many layers of ice?

 

a fear of warmth seems to be the case

why, a doctor is not the answer to this illness

 

a snowy outer rim serves as a harsh barrier

who could ever hold such a chilling heart?

 

a harsh wind wraps itself around the heart

what could ever cause someone to develop such a thing?

 

a temperature below normal encases itself

where could one let this happen?

 

a loss of light descends

when did this happen?
