Deep Freeze

Snow-covered hill, snow-covered plants,
Snow-covered lawns and sidewalks!
My heart, my blood, and my tears are frozen!
But I know the secret for defrosting them!
My pen will melt the ice-trapped feelings and emotions;
Tears will flow freely like droplets of water in the sea;
Blood will start rushing anew through my arteries and veins;
My heart will start beating and pounding with every word,
Every sentence my pen traces on the pages of this notebook,
Capturing a poem of Joy, Life, and Love, forever…
The blood will become ink…
The tears will become words…
The page will become a country…
Life will start taking shape,
Pushing Death away, far away…
