The fish

A love so meaningful,
Protected by a wall of flames
Held captive inside my aching 
My body burning from its heat
Almost unbearable
Yet unstoppable
And timeless
Never ending

But now
The fiery barrier
Between love and lasting
Burns no more
Turned to ice
An iceberg
In an ocean of torment
And I,
I am its fish
Thrown to the shore
Struggling for breath
Drowning in airsuffocating
Left to perish 
praying for the strength to go on

But then the fire returns
Not a powerful shield
Nor protection from the cruel 
This is a weapon
A fire filled with destruction
A raging storm

A bolt of lightening strikes the 
And all is lost
