Like December,
She’s cold as snow.
The face fit for any Christmas card.
But she’s cold.
She’s ice.
And she is winter,
All that is winter.
Nice to look at,
From a distance.
Not to touch,
Or be around for too long
She stings.
But she’s still
So goddamn pretty.
Yea, she’s like the snow.
Until you realize that she isn’t.
At all.
She melts,
She’s bright,
She's a thousand shades of spring.

I wrote this in study hall, while it was snowing outside... It could mean something different to everyone. You decide.

I like this poem because it starts out kind of like... I'm not really sure, like there's no hope for whoever "she" is. Like she's beautiful and perfect, yet there are so many things wrong with her and no one can change that. No one can save her. But then there's this little twist at the end where "She's bright, warm." That's really good. It's very... I don't know haha i'm not sure how to say it, I just like that little totally unexpected twist. And the last line is very pretty. I mean, it's just beautiful. "She's a thousand shades of spring." Wonderful. :)
