Frozen Fire


The Fog had danced dense-
Making it eerily silent on the way.
The familiarity had severely dipped,
All that had hovered was the wind that was cold.


The trees had stood inaudibly compacted:
As if praying fixated for a Sun.
I had sat incredibly tacit-
In a desperate attempt to create One.


Tears had laid frozen in my eyes,
Wanting me to hold those back..
Urging me not to split anymore:
Instead resolving to give it all back.


Shivers had gripped me
As I collapsed like a log.
Thousand times breaking me-
Like a chisel on the block.


My heart now blazinglyย glows-
In the fire- my mind has raised.
All I need is some prayer;
An Ambition to Ramble un-fazed.

    Hi Olivia, Thank you for visiting my blog. I am glad I found your lovely poetry blog. This poem has a lot of substance.. frozen fire.. it has a paradox that is so typical of real life. I loved reading it. Frozen tears and shivers.. I guess heart-break feels the same everywhere. ๐Ÿ™‚ I am glad you found the ambition to survive unfazed. Luv, Punam

    I really like poems that make me remember the cold days of my childhood when I used to travel with my family to the mountains in Itatiaia, in the State of Rio de Janeiro/Brazil. Of course, it was not cold like cold there is in the northern hemisphere, but memories don’t really care about this. Thanks for bringing those memories to my mind one more time through this poem of yours. Oh… and thanks for visiting me as well.

      Glad you could walk down your memory lane feeling “cold”.. ๐Ÿ˜€ I too enjoy winters and had that in my mind to draw metaphors.

      Thanks for stopping by..
