Contrast From Two Worlds pt.1

A Poem by aimless_wanderer

Read this with a contrast from two worlds pt.2

You shiver while a breeze sweeps in,
the fire is barely putting out, and the cold is fighting to win
"HA! If i'd be doing any better it'd be a sin"
for it'd be too much to have a fire warm enough to keep from freezing my skin.

The snow drifts specks out from under the crystal moonlight and through the night's pitch black
smothering you, gripping its icy hands around your throat until it lacks
enough heat to sustain you, and to cover all your tracks,
oh how you wish you could leave this icy hell and to go back

to a place of warm memories and people to love
to horse around with the guys and to give a good shove
off the cliff, and to fly into the sparkling water from above
like that of the strong, soaring, peaceful dove

When morning came there was a pile of black slush from your fire,
you sit slumped against a tree for now you tire
from the long night which had your life hanging by a thin tiny wire
Your situation is bad, its cold, and what you need most is a warm blazing pyre.

The sun is concealed by dark ominous clouds,
silence is all you hear, you can't even hear the slightest sounds
for the snow is raging and holds no bounds
to keep from burying you under soul piercing snow mounds.

You remember a time when you found that broken dove and your parents let you keep
that little bird for it taught you responsibility and how to leap
into adulthood and to bare pain around all those who weep
for you, who will forever be in a deep luscious sleep

I began writing pieces of poetry around three months ago. I'm hoping to get better so I won't be too much of a scrub anymore. more..
