Puffs of breathe,

Frosted air.

Words un-melting;

Lies freeze tongues.

Intrepid fibber;

Eyes dart East,

Then, West.

Towards lunar orb,

Free to wax and wane.

Your escape — impossible.

Wrappers, boxes —

Unconcealed.

Sweet eyes crinkle,

Mirth, laughter.

Gooey caramel,

Caresses tongues.

Chocolate dissolves,

Ice-cream compels,

Chaste-less addiction.

You rather risk in life, 

Not stay still, 

But grow and change; fly.

You have life before you, 

Don’t let life,

Scare you; chase your dreams.

Live one day at a —

Time and take — 

Those steps, to feel alive.
