of fire and ice.

of fire and ice.

A Poem by Kimberly Anastasia

the words dripped from their fingertips
and froze before they hit the ground,
shattering into bitter shards that pierced my skin.

the blood seeped from my veins and into the snow,
crimson flakes painted a pattern like fire onto the ground.
and I walked away, hearing ghosts call my name from a distance.

and so the seasons changed
as did everyone else,
cold, colder, coldest.

Rather than see the obvious, I'm going to try a different interpretation. :)
To me, it's conceivable this could relate to cyber bullying. (words dripped from their fingertips) The snow could relate to paper and a fiery reply. (I walked away, hearing ghosts call my name from a distance.)

Just a different view. Welcome to the site Kimberly. I'm giving you 100. :)

I love the imagery in this! Reading each line immediately conjures up visuals, and further establishes a despondent tone. The cold and the loneliness of it, along with the "ghosts" calling your name create a eerie atmosphere. "Of Fire and Ice" really shows that you have no problem bringing you words to life. Great read!

I like your ideas here. And you write well! I think trying to use elements, such as fire and ice, to explain more philosophical/abstract things is great. It's even better when imagery can be induced into it.

A great descriptive piece here, really great imagery and intriguing voice my one critique would be to centralise the poem in the formatting as to give it more visual beauty and to make there single line breaks within the stanzas to make certain lines more powerful I could show you with your permission?
