Poem About Cold

Updated on May 28, 2012


I feel the cold like a blanket

Wrapped around my skin

Icy dagger pinpricks

As the pain sets in

Not enough for agony,

Just enough to burn

The pain of what I should have known;

A lesson duly learned


This is a poem I composed while driving home late at night after an after school Theory of Knowledge class. I was cold although I could have turned the heater on, and I started to think about being cold and what exactly it feels like to be cold. This was just something I thought up to describe the sensation. The ending of the poem is just something poetic that I thought up to top it off. I think the lesson duly learned is just to wear a jacket. Once again, I was just messing around with writing short poems with short lines and lots of rhyming. I was composing it while driving, so I could only make it so long because I had to remember it until such time as I could write it down.

      These are great poems. I especially liked "Overthinking Things," that's how I feel a lot of the time.

      I would recommend breaking these poems up into different hubs, adding a picture, and maybe a short paragraph about the background of the poem.

      Using the title of your hub and the word "poem" will make it easier for people to find them in google. For example your "Butterflies" poem. More people are going to be searching "poems about butterflies" instead of "poems I've written."
