The wintry woes
licked dry my face
like an ice-cream
freezing in the furnace

Its icy fingers
wiped off my tears
like salty lakes
frozen with fear

Its chilly breath
benumbed my bones
like sword scathing
through acerbic moans

its blanched eyes
petrified my blood
like the vile welcome
by Medusa’s head

Its stony heart
clasped my cherub
like a helpless fly
in Charlotte’s web

Its frostbitten lips
kissed me g’night
and i saw the stars
in broad day light
