Ice King

Cold consumed me

Like fire

 

I tried to recall my name

As I shivered

 

This new world was iridescent

Too bright

 

My memories floated away

Chunks of ice in stormy water

 

Goodbye, my love

Goodbye, to me

 

This crackling metamorphosis

Painful in every sense

 

Ice rushed in

And I ran out

 

A cold shell

An Ice King

 

To forever be lonely

To forever see nothing

 

Except for a flame

Small and weak

 

One step towards it

Ground sliding beneath me

 

Destiny trapped

Within this flickering flame

 

How could I let it be

Alone like me

 

Endless eyes

And simmering hair

 

She was mine

She had to be

 

But she could see too much

That eternal, infernal flame

 

She tried to run away

So I touched the flame

 

Frozen and glistening

A sculpture for me

 

How final it seemed

I was alone

 

A thought came back

A memory lost

 

It whispered to me

Voice brittle and wilting

 

Ice can never be

Anything but cold

 

This poem is about: 
Me
Our world
