Paralysis, by Faith Subscribe to rss feed for Faith

The words flow
from his lips 
like water.



Biting to the bone.

They strip away skin,
tearing through 
to the heart--
now frozen.



While the tears fall--
surprisingly hot
against the chill 
that crashes like a wave
through every muscle--
to the ground.

And he walks away
leaving a wall of winter
in his wake.

No backwards glances.

No second thoughts.

--I originally wrote this poem in a different format, but didn't like it. So, after fiddling around with the structure and adding words here & there, this is the finished product.--

i read paralized first but both are good and i see why you said they went together...i hate it when people in our lives do things like this whether they mean to or not...and i know in a few ways ive done the deadly deed myself
