Let Me In

Standard

With each step further

The cold creeps up my spine

Behind the bushy clouds

The sun hides behind.

I want to be apart of you

If you’ll let me inside

I want us to be one

Rolling, soundless tide.

I wade further into you

The freeze gripping my chest

With the cold pain

I hold my breath.

Suddenly there is warmth

And I know you have let me in

My muscles relax

I feel my body sinking… sinking.

To Be New

Standard

Your rays of heat

Melt the snow from me

Spring came too late

But I cannot wait-

I need to breathe

My lungs aren’t working…

I am still cold…

I need to come alive

I need to come to life

I need to…

I need you…

To lift me up

Into the sun

And watch me bloom

Until the

Moon wans

Like a lonely swan

I bow my head in shame

The light’s been gone

For so damn long

That it hurts

When you look my way…

I am still cold…

I need to be alive

I need the warmth inside

I need to feel

I need to heal

These blackened wounds

That prevent me to bloom

I will mend them

Soon I’ll have no excuse

For my selfish ties

When day does come

And spring has begun

I will know

To say goodbye

I need to say goodbye

I need to come to life

I need to…

I need to…

I need to feel the heart

Beating at the core

Of the earth

And I will be new

I will be new

Again.

I am Winter

Standard

It’s winter again
The cold has rolled in
The frost has started and
The ice took my heart again.
I am frozen
I am cold
I can’t feel
I don’t see the point any more.
The snow is sticking now
It twinkles like fallen stars
But it melts at your touch
Because it was empty from the start.
I am hallow
Wind blows through me
I can’t feel
So I’m done pretending.
As dead as leafless trees
I stand with a slight desire within me
To live long enough for spring
When maybe I can begin blossoming
But as the night carries on
With no sign of day
I give up waiting for dawn
And just accept the gray.

 

Hot and Cold

Standard

All words have already been said
What more can I say to describe the way you get into my head?
You bring me to heaven
The moon
Then back again
To finish me off with the heat of your breath
On my tongue
Into my lungs
Keeping your eyes on mine
Your gaze is my kryptonite.
You’re hotter than the sun
My skin burns under your touch
But your eyes
Like cool rays of ice
You keep me hot and cold
Begging
Begging
Begging for more

Ice Queen

Standard

You’re right

I’m cold

I have a heart made of stone

So why is it that you love me?

So why is it that you stay?

Is it because you think you can melt the ice away?

Well you can’t

I’ve built up a wall

So tall

That you can’t even see

The other side where it’s me:

The Ice Queen.

Where I don’t feel pain

Where my heart is heavy on my tongue

My mouth- sewn shut

My lungs are filled with frost

But I don’t feel a thing

Because my whole body is numbing

If you think you can warm me

You’re wrong

Even if you climb over the wall

I’m gone

Sure I might be there physically

But me, the real me, was never inside my body

I am winter

I am cold

I am ice

I am frozen

Summer won’t thaw me

Spring won’t warm me

Fire won’t melt me

Heat won’t heal me,

And you?

You can’t save me.
