Ice Queen


You are such an ice queen
I don’t know how you survived fifteen years locked 
In this cold without getting frostbite
Romeo awaits me underneath
My balcony
You caught us “sub rosa”, but swore to  keep
No secrets
You’d be much happier at our demise, would gladly
Bid farewell, but you don’t understand
Love, and how fiery it feels

You can’t see Cupid bit me, though
An arrow struck my butt
Would you know love if it hit you, or would you just
Let it pass you by?
Your panties are in bunches because I can
Grab the reins
I can suddenly control myself;
I think you wet your pants
Is it so hard to believe I’m sound in heart and in mind?
I know just what I’m feeling, so don’t bother

To say I’m foggy with delusions is only downright rude
I thought I knew myself much better than to
Go blindly through the dark
My twin, you underestimate just what I’m worth 
One day you’ll see you’re wrong
You yanked away my teddy bear, and now you hate Romeo, too
But you can’t decide how I live my life
And who I am to love

Don’t you know I grew a garden
Away from ice-incased land?
Are you upset because I dared to grow something
As delicate and fragile as a reluctant, 
Red rose?
Am I so desperate for wanting to feel in a world so numb, where
Reality is fantasy?
Emotion seldom scares me, because it’s the heart of life
But such a core scares you 
To you, it’s best not
To have one

So rejoice, O ye ice queen
For I built my own castle
Of sea glass and roses, where ice lingers no longer
No amount of sleet or snow could make
Me change my mind
I packed my bags for paradise, my sun-thawed
Heart in tow
