What is Warmth?

Chapter 1

What is warmth?
Once, it was warm, but not now.
Now I am shut out, lost in the cold.
Now I am left in the chill of your wake.
Once, it was warm.
Once, you held my hand.

What is warmth? 
It has all but left me.
Only fragments, faceted memories, 
Linger at the edge of my vision.
You are beyond my reach.

What is love, but a shallow reassurance from your lips?
Kindness, but a fleeting thought. 
I am lost, shut out in the cold.
I am merely a shadow of the broken past.
It is the last glimpse of a picture forever forgotten.

What is warmth?
I cannot remember.
What is love?
I cannot feel it.
What are you?
You are an angelic demon.
You are a hole of breathtaking devastation.

If you would but look at me,
I could remember.
If you would but look at me,
I could feel.
If you would just look at me,
I could forget.
If you would only look at me,
I could become more than a shade.
I could glisten once more in your glory. 

What is warmth?
Do you even know?

I have also started to read your others works, and will review them when finished. Keep going. Never stop.

crissy: Awesome work. The characters are so beautifully flawed and easy to relate to. The protagonist Bethany Hill is a woman that I would definitely want to meet in real life. The author has managed to make me visualize the story like a movie. The two time frames of past and present are also so beautifu...
