Poet's Notes

this poem is  meant for the Ice king contest. Written about the cold fierce childhood this character had in memory and the damage it did to him. A parent who doesn't show love is rock hard frigid.

Ice King

Ice King
By Karl Marszalowicz

Null in the numbness
Defunct system collapsing
His blight in my hand

Abuses don't melt
Reliving a time of need
Cold words blistered me      
Crying icicles
Shattering a childhood
He liked me frost bit
