COLD HEART

Clutching the thin coat to her frame
Shivering
Breath coming out in clouds
Trying to ignore the chill
Running her finger along the glass pane
The layer of new ice
Melting under her touch
Water dripping slowly
She hunched over
Into herself
Shoving her shaking hands into her pockets
She felt the cold creeping into her limbs
Stomping her feet too alleviate the pain
Fingers and toes becoming stiff
Winter used to be fun when she was younger
She never got cold then
Diving into snow banks
Racing down snow covered hills
Faulty memories
She was sure she was just as cold then
She just wanted to feel it more now
Matching her on the inside
