Cold

Icy fingers graze bare skin

shivers run up and down her body

wind bit at her eyes, fingers, and ears

as she pressed forward walking through the

ice

the only sensation in her hands was the numbing burn

she felt as she moved her

fingers

her eyes watered as the temperature

dropped more

she knew in her heart that she was done

she couldn’t take it anymore

her legs felt heavy as she dragged forward

she stumbled, tripped,

and fell

she could only take so much

with one last shudder

her icy breath

escaping her lips

snowflakes decorated her eyelashes as she

closed them for the last time
