S H I V E R S | POEM


A shiver,

s h i v e r,

it crawls, it whispers, it caresses

my hideous skin,

and weaves across my creaking spine,

tickling my heart of stone and causing my whirling mind to plummet,

a shiver touches my lips

and my teeth chatter

as I fight the lies the shivers bring,

s h i v e r.

A face in the mirror,

a plastered smile, wide and kind,

eyes shining weary.

A shiver slivers across my skin again

and I wonder

what it is like

to peer into the mirror

and see something that doesn’t cause

me

to

s h i v e r.
