My Little Ice Storm

Cold hands, warm heart
or so the saying goes.
But I've been told that through my veins
a river of ice only flows!

With the coldest of looks that could freeze you
at fifty yards and more
I'm told I have a heart of stone
that's chilled right to its core!

But this little ice show
does mask a fire that brews
one that threatens to slowly burn
then explode just like a fuse

So be grateful for my ice storm
a thaw can set in quick
but be careful where you start a flame
it might just be my wick!!

    Beneath that icy exterior, I'm sure you have a warm heart, Emma. I love the irony in this poem. If someone "melts your heart," he could be in for an explosion of passion. Great work here! Best wishes, Carolyn
