Hold Me Close, Love

Unlike me

you prefer the cold

to the heat

Hold me close, love

 

You prefer the cold

I remain to shiver

Hold me close, love

and I will be warm

 

I remain to shiver

keep your arms wrapped around me

and I will be warm

I'll forever love you

 

Keep your arms wrapped around me

Let go of your uncertainties

I'll forever love you

I'll be your shelter

 

Let go of your uncertainties

You prefer protection

I'll be your shelter

to the heat

 

You prefer protection

Unlike me

to the heats

Hold me close, love

Very creative use of your lines! I missed your pattern the first time I read this, but found it during the second. I really wonder about your cold/heat metaphor. I can't help but think that it may be something personal to your relationship with your previous/current love. Either way, this poem comes off very light, as if you're floating on a cloud (of love). You've created a strong atmosphere in this poem andthat is what makes it a great poem.
