Writing Prompt Wednesday – “Cold”


cold by Franiuk

Chilled and shivering with blistered feet in ice and snow

Open eyes squinted in pain, the harsh wind biting at

Lids and lashes covered in frost and numbness

Definitely, this was a mistake

Even all the determination in your body can’t warm you

Requiring far more than willpower to just,

Simply, even imagine a warmth that is no longer there

Try as you might, this struggle is endless

Icy wind like frigid knives piercing your skin

Little left to do but kneel in this blizzard, defeated

Leaving you colder still
