Frost on the wire falls
Smashing in a sloppy
Chill water
drips from eaves
Gushes from gutters
Sensational sunlight
conquers the cold
Frees all from frozen fetters
All but my heimal heart
Abandoned ages ago
My soul shakes and shivers
Ice encases my essence
ensconced in shadow
where the sun cannot slip its
sultry fingers around it
He who could bring spring
Is a distant dream
Hope hangs on
within me like icicles
that someday he will care
Dare to shine upon me his smile
bright as dazzling daylight
with eyes glowing like embers
and thaw this arctic angel.

I enjoyed reading this, but don't overdo it on the alliteration, because then it may lose its effect as a means of highlighting something you would like to stress.
