Mouth Pains/Chilling(Poem#4-High School Years)

1. Mouth Pains:
Like a howling in the night 
How my tooth burns 
Searing my mouth, like a hot iron pressed to flesh 
I grab at the bottle, like a human with asthma
Gasp for air 
Please let the pill help my pain 

2. Chilling:

Cold as a witch's tit 
I trudged through the snow 
Looking for shelter, like a fox looks for its prey 
Bitter ice slashes my face 
Like a cold knife against gritty bread 
Nothing left on the land, white 
White as a fresh sheet for a fresh bed 
My gray cloak gives the land one color 
Grayness fills my days, months, years 
Like a cancer, gripping at me forever
