Icicles

A Chapter by chrysantheranium

Freeze in place,
Face in peace
With silver-lined smiles
Of chipped teacup teeth
.
Bite my hand,
I don't mind if I bleed
We all bleed
.
.
We all bleed
.
.
Drip, melt your trust in my hands
Freeze my skin
Buying goosebumps by the can
Ring it up
.
Ring it up
.
Ring it up
Ring it up
.
Drip for me
Freeze for me
Melt into place
Peaceful porcelain face
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
White eyes
Red teeth
Blue clementine tongue
.
.
Child lost to freedom won
.
.
Drip for me
Freeze for me
Drip for me
.
Ring it up.

Author's Note

chrysantheranium
Ignore basic grammatical errors, as there are some rules that, as a writer, I don't care to abide by. I feel restricted when following these rules, and since I have such a hard time getting my thoughts across, I'd rather break a few rules than be grammatically "perfect."

a good thing about poetry is having poetic license...punctuation is often a crap shoot in poetry...
I hardly use any at all...but on purpose so readers can read lines as they will...putting the emphasis on whatever words they see fit.
I really like this poem...especially the idea of "melt your trust in my hands" and "child lost to freedom won"
growing up is hard...but we learn from our mistakes, from the good and bad that happens...we cannot just purchase experience...we have to live it...we have to preserve it somehow in burn preventative freezer bags of acceptance, and just let life happen and teach us.
nicely done.

Had to read these words several times, but each time I did... I began to see things more clearer and cleanly
