A Cold Love- Poem by Rebecca Wood

Updated on February 15, 2012

A Cold Love

First off, I would just like to thank everyone for their responses to my recent poems. As my poems move you, your comments move me. This poem is the shortest poem I have ever written but If you come to figure out what the words are saying, you should find it very powerful.

As I die, I have a smile

As you live now, you are crying

I lie there basking in the light

While you sit hidden in the dark

I am wrapped in arms of warmth

When you hold onto a soul so cold

      Profound indeed. I wrote this poem based of a picture I drew of a mourning man holding a dead woman. As he held her, her head lay back provoking the slight "smile" across her face and well... you probably get the rest of course. The simplicity yet detail in this poem is what makes this my favorite.
