venus

the white of my body

more snow than skin

ice cold to the touch

i know you think i’ll thaw

 

this ice age has no end

my fire stopped burning

the day they left

my heart, my sun

nothing but a rock

 

floating aimlessly 

in the space they left

 

                                               behind.
