Twenty-Below Zero

The deepest chill of wavered Will-
Dry and drained of thoughts once Sane
No rush, no haste- just Time to kill
(As nervousness engulfs my Brain!)
The solemn place no eyes invade-
A world away from another's touch
The Mental Fortress I have made
From trusting people far too much...

    I read some of the comments below. I think I suffer a little from SAD. I dislike the gloom of winter, cold and snow but there is beauty in it. Sitting next to a fire with comfy blanket and sipping Merlo takes the bite out. Love this :)

    Love this, I feel there is much below the surface of this.

    Just read what you said about loving winter. I don't know, man. If you have a tendency to become sad, summer is much better for you. SAD is actually the name of the syndrome for those who feel melancholy in winter. I sometimes wonder if I have it!!

    lol yeah, we discussed this one in "Equinox". I know I have SAD, so it's ironic I love fall and winter so much. If I didn't already know about it, I would have really appreciated the information. Thanks, Andrea :)

    Archaic, this is an impressive piece. Your very style of condensing a gigantic message in so short a poem. Only Poetic connoisseurs can do that. Great write and thumbs up my friend! JM

    That's so very kind of you to say, Joseph; makes me happier than I can express. Thank you so very much! :)

    A very cold way to be. You gotta move to a warmer climate and thaw out, man. I enjoyed the metaphor.

    Thanks, Andrea. Ironically, I love cold weather. Autumn is my favorite season, and I look forward to winter. The shorter days wreak havoc on me psychologically, but I love to watch it snow. I'm one of those nuts that prays for blizzards lol. Thanks for dropping by :)
