While I am in your
Tight embrace- the winter winds
Cannot chill my bones

Because I can be
No colder than when I am
In your clutching arms

Poetry is the soundtrack to my life, the lyrics are my thoughts accompanied by the melody of my emotions.

‎"I’m learning how to drown out the constant noise that is such an inseparable part of my life. I don’t have to prove anything to anyone. I only have to follow my heart and concentrate on what I want to say to the world: I run my world." - Beyoncé

Good job... And the verses are really haikus... :))

Wow that was great!  I read the first few lines and was like, how in the world is this about unrequited love? After I read the last three lines, I was like O.O It gave me chills!  It was like, really really really great!  Great doesn't even describe it, it's that good!

The first bit appears to be sweet, like a romantic line to a lover, but it turns out it's false and the love is not shared by both. Excellent job, I find this very unique. :)

"Live your art" -made this one up myself. Simple, but true.

The first three lines tricked me and I like that. It was surprising and odd to read: because I can be no colder than when I am in your clutching arms. A love that has fallen flat. I like it.

Live for today, not for tomorrow

I read this poem imagining someone begging to be loved, desperate for acceptance. it has a cold distant feel to it too as though the person who is trying to get away is thinking "I don't love you, can't you see that?" It's really good.

Me reading first two lines: *aww cute* :)

Me reading rest of the poem: O.o 

Wow. Where did this come from? It is definitely not cute. Actually, it's kind of haunting...and I'm not entirely sure what I think of it...which I suppose is a good thing, because it makes the poem interesting. Is this from personal experience? It seems genuine, so either it is, or you are a very good liar. :)
