Climax (cli’-max): Generally, the arrangement of words, phrases, or clauses in an order of increasing importance, often in parallel structure.
Morning arrives and I hear your name. It drums on my head like icy rain.
It pounds my soul in cold dark streams. It smothers what’s left of my heart’s dreams.
Yes, the fire is out but I still see your name. Written in the charred rubble of what feelings remain.
Over and over I burn and I freeze. My love for you has become a disease.
