Shiver

For I am ice

With crystal fingers

Frostbitten, gripping

On a hand

That no longer holds me back

 

Fractals break from my face

Chipping

Steadily in the bristling wind

 

Silver strings drape

From my scalp

Over solid cotton and wool

And streak my face

Over my shut eyes

 

Drops of water

My only pulse

They dribble down

My back

 

Warmth hits me

But I am too cold

I shed

I shed

I become formless

My body sits upon pavement

Liquid

To be splashed by careless feet

 

Nature is not done

No, she calls me into the skies

And I lift

I lift

My body splits into particles

Gases

To be gazed upon by careful eyes

 

I build

Looking down upon a world

A world which let me freeze

And I love them

Oh, God, I love them

 

So back to them

I fall

 

I splash into greater waters

Tiny droplets of who I was

Drown into the pools of

What I am

They dissolve, distill

Thin out

Existent

But hardly

 

I expand

I am more than a frozen figure

More than dirty water on pavement

Stronger than the atoms flurrying in the sky

 

The sun caresses my face

The stars rest upon my shoulders

The moon lingers like a mother

Lulling my tides

 

Clouds try to steal me

But I am too wide

Too heavy

Every portion they take

I steal back

 

I am the ocean

My toes sink into the deep Atlantic reef

My hands wave across the Pacific

Life surrounds me

Dwells inside me

 

I will never be lonely again
