Sometimes we go through "Winters" in our lives...

Devil on my Shoulder
A Poem by Colton Warr

You should set her free
Unleash her to this world without you
To you, heartbreak is nothing new 
I beg of you, I plea 

Unshackle her from your chains
What are you trying to prove?
She is something you can afford to lose
I promise, it won't feel like a million pains

Let the winter make you cold 
Pull the trigger, be bold 
You will find a new hand to hold
One whose hair and heart will be gold 

Escape this mirage 
Your emotions a messy collage 
Temptation a bearing barrage 

Give in to me, please 
I can make it a breeze 

Again I say, you should set her free

   *****

Winters Interlude
A Poem by Colton Warr 

My heart burns with your desire
A fireplace melting the night for our love
Your voice sounds of a thousand Angels in a choir
You, my love, I put nothing above

Even though we are apart, I can feel your heat 
Saving me from this brutal winter 
Lay your head on my heartbeat 
Watch how fast I can become a sinner

I can still smell the aroma of your flame 
Blazing out of control 
You are something that cannot be tame
Would you please burn down my soul 

But what if this flame of ours goes out? 
What if the cold returns? 
All of our heat doused 
And what if I see her...

Don't let the winter make you cold 
But what if my eyes go astray? 
And I see her green and gold 
Would she be enough to take me away? 

I would then be graced with a different heat
You cast aside and sold 
You without a heartbeat 
I am warm and you are cold

Featured Review

I wondered at first why these two poems were placed here together but I think they are two sides of the same coin. They could be separate, but they could also be all one, in a sense. Their coupling together works too well though, I think, for them to be completely separated.
I recognise in both pieces something of myself, and when taken together that identification is even stronger. It takes thought and feeling, an objective introspection to observe the complexities of one's own character, and the regretful negatives that arise from experience. In essence, an honest appraisal of the shortcomings of human nature. It's relatively rare, I think, to come across a wisdom and honesty from the male perspective (possibly because it is so often perceived as dislikeable - particularly by women).
I believe the greatest strength in writing is a sense of reality, and seeing things for what they are (there is wisdom in acceptance). But also, being able to do this with meaning and depth poetically reinforces that strength. However imperfectly. I think you achieved that here.

I enjoyed the poetry. I like poetry that ask questions.
"But what if this flame of ours goes out?
What if the cold returns?
All of our heat doused
And what if I see her..."
I like the tone of poem leading to the strong ending. The two poems worked very well together. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.
