    The grey sunless day
    Covered in cold white snow
    Reflecting my mood and soul
    This frigid yet beautiful
    White, sparkling wintertime
    At nighttime another world
    Silent, calm, and dead
    Snow glowing under streetlamps
    Glowing and sparkling wildly
    Like some kind of living thing
    Ice so slick and slippery
    And icicles clear, bright, and glittering
    Like cold diamonds in the night
    Hard and cold, yet so very fragile
    Just like my mind and soul
    The winter is in fact me
    And I am in fact the winter

    A poem I wrote a few weeks ago, it just came to me, had a lot to do with how I was feeling that day. Again any comments and feedback(unless exceptionally negative) are all very welcome.

    I like how you use words your surroundings to describe to inner core of you how you are feeling

    Thank you very much, to be honest I rarely ever 'plan' my poems so to speak they just come out however they come out. I just write what feels right and it usually works out, my writing style has evolved quite a lot though over the years. As well as choice of words, and so on, again thank you for the compliment.

    That's a great poem and I hope you continue to write more of them. :) it definitely expresses you through them.

    Thank you Trevor and you don't have to worry about me not writing. I will do so until the day I either die or catch that final bus ride. Thank you very much for the compliments on my work, every one is greatly appreciated.
