He promised winter it could stay

He promised winter it could stay

A Poem by Cruz Niq

I've always been fascinated with the fact Solomon asked for wisdom. Not gold or riches, or women or strength or beauty, but wisdom.

He promised winter it could stay
Inside his bones
In his rest
A brittle flower on his conscience 
Unwilling to sprout 
Hesitant to tower over his will
He loved his little flower
Though he'd been scorned
So cold it burned his blood
It was okay, in his infinity
The darkness was his cradle
The ice, a fading visage
Of something once his
He did not care to know
Since he promised winter it could stay

What a beautiful poem! So frigid, frightening. What might have once been love turned cold, and numb, unyielding, unfeeling. A shiver down my spine. Put more logs on the fire and keep writing.
