Ode to a Snowman

“How did I get so cold?” the snow woman said

“When did these icicles fill my head?

My fingers turn so blue, so dark

The snow drifts fill up in my heart

Ice in my veins, cold running deep

Ice in my lungs, snowflakes I breathe

I stand on slush, it turns to ice

Frigid eyes and arctic bite.

I once knew warmth, heat, sun, goodwill

If I try hard I remember it still

But since you, all I feel is chill.

-Sarah Ahmed
