Poem - 017
Poem - 017, Marshmallow Blizzard
We stood in the blizzard together,
Our half lanterns beaten by the weather.
Your ember was just a flicker,
My ember felt even littler…
But standing by you,
I could feel the warmth it once gave.
We’ll hideout here in a cave…
As I connect my half to yours,
The lanterns unite as one and the flame-
It grows and not in vain.
Fear tells me that glass will soon shatter.
But seeing you tells me that doesnt matter.
Your goofy smile…
A distraction from the long, cold, while.
The small white pillow you placed on a stick,
Burning the sugar over the flame like a wick.
Trying it, I couldn't help but think about it…
Just how well we seem to stick.
- Kaliyah Myers, a Poem to a soon to be book named, The Mad Project
