Shards of Ice



He possessed her.

Keeping her in his heart –

locking her there with shards of ice.


Razor sharp edges

making her bleed

should she try to leave.


Warmth exuded from her soul –

melting the snow.

Calmness replaced turmoil.


As she turned to go,

He took her hand –

promised her a warmer man.


Looking into his eyes,

she saw icy blue

and kissed him adieu.
