Sudden Changes in Temperature

There
was heat
in the night,
the painful heat
of words exchanged in misguided passion,
lovers — inflamed by pride — sleeping alone.
The morning sun
revealed a
heavy
frost.

  7. I do think fights are worst in the winter. I like the heat, the flame, the frost. Beautifully written.

Some of what I write is true, some is fiction; most is merely possibility.
