Frozen music

16003205_1833113303616542_7912161581201337846_nThe ice storm

swallowed sound

as suddenly as calm was lost

trees became music

weighed with the tongue of cold

if there is one time I should think

letting go and lying down

to bathe in clarinet wonder

it would be after ice

has swept clear our pretense

that we are in control

that our little lives are not

at best


liable to

freeze and thaw

by the whim of storm

  1. Everything in your message is clear.

    I, too…use to feel this way about people and being extremely careful on who to trust. Although, in the end, they ended up betraying me and the friendship. It’s a long story but it hurts til this day.

    Incredible writing.

    Also, the title and the poem itself connected to a great song by Madonna.

    Love you sis. 🙂

  2. People are surprising. Did you write the words at the top, as well? Such truth there that you never know, sometimes, who will stick and who will care about you in your darkest hours. I have walked this road. It is one of the biggest positives in the end because you really know when the smoke clears. Such good writing today, C.

  3. I did not. Though I believe them very prescient. People are surprising. I think that is so underrated and true. You never know. You are always surprised by who is loyal and always surprised by who is not. Just shows us what we do not know or understand. I do agree so much that it is a very positive experience though!

  4. It does hurt – it doesn’t stop hurting you’re right about that – although with time you come to blame yourself less and see things for what they are – if someone seeks to hurt a person it is always because they are in pain not because of the person they wound. Love you Asmov x

  5. OMG you are SO right my friend! That is EXACTLY what it is! I agree. Some people really do believe it doesn’t happen unless you almost ‘ask for it’ and that by talking about anything real you’ll have it happen … yep that (shakes head) really (shakes head) bothers me!
