Similes and Metaphors for ReadWritePoem

When the snowstorm
of your words
swirls around me,
I find shelter
in my mind.

It’s like a reverse snow globe
where all is peaceful
inside the bubble
and I can watch
while ice flies
from your tongue
and your arms
generate the wind
on the outside.

You look so cold:
a bent tree.
a bruised cloud.

I sit in a swing
on the porch
of the little house
inside my head
and watch you unravel.

you've written so well about how to calm oneself, how to avoid being 'pulled in' by another, how to manage your own anger; it's great! i love the whole idea!

A reverse snowglobe. Wonderful. And the last two lines pack quite some power.

i love the idea that the little place you go to in your mind has a porch swing... i will have to get one of those for the nether regions of my mind as well......
