It was a frigid night
It was everywhere
It was everything

Never in my life
Had I seen anything like it
Never in my life
Had I felt anything like it

The cold, cold, cold
Of this stark winter night
When the February wind swirled at our backs
When the angry fists of heat punches at our faces

We stared mesmerized
We stirred at the sparks
We stood before the fire's triumphant roar

Blistering
Melting
Charring
Burn, burn, burn

Everything
Everything inside was
Gone, gone, gone

There was no place
Colder than
The lake
My heart
In this winter night.
11/11/2009; finding a bunch of stuff from old boyfriends reminded me of the wintry night one of my best friends and i took all the letters, presents and things from my first love, we rode the bus to the North Avenue beach, and we burnt everything in a big metal trash can.
