I’m still terrible at titles….

It is only when someone cozies up to me
With a fire burning volumes in their chest
That I realize how little of that I have
And how I am filled with such darkness

When they reach out to me to hold
With their palms of open warmth
The sun in their smile
The cold in my eyes
I am brimming a winter storm

Attempts are made in multiples
It seems that I blow every single chance
I fill the sky with heavy clouds
And the sun withdrew it’s hand

The heat dissipated within my chills
My shadows cloaked so that the fire could not breathe
And when it grew to be no more
I felt how much of it I really needed
