"It was cliché, he knew, but he meant it classic." ~S.E. Hinton (Some of Tim's Stories)

I am so
Cold even though I
Am under a blanket
Which was probably
Made by starving children
In a starving country

I do not blink
If I blink I am dead
If I blink I
See her behind
My closed eyelids

It did not rain
When they put her in
The earth and the
Radiant sun felt
Wrong and disrespectful

I am cold
I shiver and hug
The blanket closer
But I can never thaw out
Of the ice which envelopes me

The author's comments:
the reason the narrator feels cold is because she feels that she can never move on or get over the person's death. She feels frozen.
