This about becoming numb to the world with metaphors of ice. Thanks so much to @orcastogether for the prompt of nature and @angeli_luis for the prompt of numbness

Suffocated In Ice

Blistering cold air freezes all moisture

Blistering cold air freezes all moisture like a starving flower for a condensed droplet of water

Turns your lungs to ice like weights in water

Turns your lungs to ice like weights in water that pull you down to the depths of the cold sea

Turns your lungs to ice like weights in water that pull you down to the depths of the cold sea where you drown

A block of ice frozen in time

A block of ice frozen in time, nowhere to go

A block of ice frozen in time, nowhere to go but back in your mind

Slowly suffocating on the words in your mouth

Slowly suffocating on the words in your mouth, taped shut against what you cannot say

Slowly suffocating on the words in your mouth, taped shut against what you cannot say, trying to find thoughts like

Slowly suffocating on the words in your mouth, taped shut against what you cannot say, trying to find thoughts like finding a needle in a haystack

Your eyelids glued open against the beseeching cold

Your eyelids glued open against the beseeching cold that dries your eyes like wet clothes under the sweltering sun

Your eyelids glued open against the beseeching cold that dries your eyes like wet clothes under the sweltering sun, only in the cold you go blind

Black spots appearing in your sight

Black spots appearing in your sight, like dark stars popping up in the night sky

What is coldness but heat to the extreme

What is coldness but heat to the extreme, feeling too much of just about everything

You go numb to the pain

You go numb to the pain, red on the skin

You go numb to the pain, red on the skin, burnt from the cold like you can burn from the heat

You go numb to the pain, red on the skin, burnt from the cold like you can burn from the heat, boiling in bated breaths that hold back your screams

Vying for help while encased in ice

Vying for help while encased in ice, frozen tears crying from the clouds

Vying for help while encased in ice, frozen tears crying from the clouds, pelting to the ground in cuts and slices

Trapped in place against all struggle

Trapped in place against all struggle, tied down to earth to see time pass through fogged goggles

A bath of emotions suffocated in ice
