In a place
That once brought her comfort
On the coldest night of the year,
She assembles herself - knees to her chest
For the very touch that warmed her
And gave her life
Has left her frozen.
Lifeless in front of a crackling fire.
Breaking her gaze as tears fold
In the creases of her eyes.
They do not fall.
She fears the end
As much as she fears her broken - breathing,
And that is the only thing
