Glistening silver
falls from the skyline
coating my world
with ice,

leaving me aching,
shivering craving
fiery nights

gone by.

What Crimson said.

And I love the singalong melody of it, too. Very wistful and sexy somehow.

This was very poignant and it somehow was augmented by the recent rush of cold in my city. Very fitting.

Marie said...

Nice poem. I love the contrast of ice and fire.

perhaps eliminate punctuation.

for example:

Glistening silver
falls from the skyline
coating my world
with ice

leaving me aching
shivering craving
fiery nights

gone by

i tthink it works.

hope you're well.
