    I unnerved the air with my stare
    and a bitter ball of cold appeared.
    A toxic drink launched toxic glare
    and flooded like rain through cracks in walls

    Dissociated and disoriented,
    with the question of time tickling my veins,
    a wetness, unwarranted,
    puddled against my blink in waterfalls

    The frozen orb was white and icy;
    I again eyed it with intent,
    and inhaled it, for the sake of sobriety,
    breathing in the chill hanging in the halls

    And then I swallowed down the Arctic
    and bit the frostbite from the hands of God.
    Snow teased the Earth, and with one drunken lick
    I braced my mouth and consumed it all

    Plus dark peace and quiet, raw finesse,
    I ingested every heat's undoing.
    Cold belongs in my blood best.
    Warmth rest in me? It never shall​

    :blink: Oh my! That is powerful! The imagery and metaphors are wonderful: "the question of time tickling my veins" and " bit the frostbite from the hands of God" - talk about chills [literally] going up and down one's spine!

    Oh my! :eek:hmy::blink: Well done!
