The Ice Man

Egotistical gargoyle of a man

With your pretentious stance

and stoic brain,

with your harsh edges

and stone cold hands

you could have killed

a man

with that ice

that you possess

with the robotic coldness

of your presence.

 

The ice will never melt

Even when you try to love him with your

Red hot fire heart

that beats in a rib cage of flames,

 

He will not hesitate to put it out.

Broken Wings

 

‘You’re like a broken bird’, he said.

‘I want to fix you up and set you free.’

I said, ‘what if I’m not worth saving?’

He replied, ‘but you are.’

He paused. ‘It’s ok to be a little broken you know.’
