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?

Richard D. Cooper: I wish I could write poetry like this. It's clever because it also tells a story, too. I like the flow of it, the way sentences slip together as they should. Very good indeed. I have also started to read your others works, and will review them when finished. Keep going. Never stop.

maxniederhofer: Kara,I loved this. The one suggestion I would make is to show me, don't tell me. E.g."Now look at your skin / It is beautiful / You are beauty pure."It might be better to use more evocative imagery and language to make me feel, i.e. truly comprehend, the pure beauty, rather than telling me it is ...

Barbara Ivusic: I really loved this poem. Perfect use of imagery to outline the digital age. I loved the image of the olive branch and how it is posted for all to see but no one can touch it. Everything you describe is so true that it has become common knowledge yet no one acknowledges it anymore. I look forward...
