my chills


my chills

ran down to my little ashy toes

I’m kind of cold

but I felt warm

its only me

when I get my chills running up

my spine, I shiver

especially I came out of the bathtub

or a pool the cold droplets of water lingers

every curve of my body

for about oh a long second of 5 minutes

I don’t know

though I dried up in the sun or under the warm blanket

still I keep shaking

my chills

a sign of trouble a signal of love

even nervous breakdowns

sometimes when I get my chills , I cry

& yet I never laugh

through every fear I took

my chills comes & take the power all over me

like majesty queens

but I show them chills

who’s boss & suddenly

I found the strong compassionate butterfly poet soldier

In me

Ooooh. That's nice. Brrrr. I like the music, the repetition you use to good effect, and some of the lines which really remain. Bravo...

Awww, Kai, this is sweet. My favourite part is this: "& suddenly I found the strong compassionate butterfly poet soldier In me".
