Cold hands


Use to the cold

Skin harden by the deep freeze

Lungs sting with each deep breathe

Sleet beating my face with shards

Arctic temperatures destroying the body

Bitter wind howling, piercing my ears skin

Eyes burning from the bright snow

Every fiber of hair feels the bite

Bones ache with every movement

Staring out to the vast frozen tundra

I fall in love with my world

This site is my medicine

And all the rest fades away

Nowhere else would I rather live
