A Winter’s Night

Winter cold biting
At my lips – prickling skin sends
Shivers down my spine

On and on I walk
Numbed – I let frozen air in
Filling up my lungs

Refreshing, light blow
Renewing life, gushing in
And out – blessed pain

Empowered harsh rush
Icy touch bringing relief
Hushed cry, broken scream

Time lost, stolen voice
Compensated by the warmth
Of a stranger’s smile.

    when its cold and so silent, a smile even from a stranger warms the heart. I could imagine being there just from your words.
