4 lines from a thaw

4 lines from a thaw

A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto

4 lines from a thaw




snowed in by your icy demeanor

slipping on your indifferent pavement


even my salty tears

can not steady my heart's step.

Jacob, love this one. Started to laugh as I read your words. Good one. Valentine

Thawing my brain from this winter freeze... Why does the lack of sunlight steal our loves? And we still have to make it through a few more months...

yes we do...thank you for your words, Bacchus,

Love this!
So simple, and yet it speaks VOLUMES!
Awww, winter...you saucy wench you!

ha ha...thank you, ReedWrite...

Admire the poet's optimistic perspective; he might be forty lines from a thaw.
Clearly, this guy is not soon coming in out of the cold.
Excellent use of metaphors.
