Ice Blue Heart

Your heart is cruel and made of frigid steel
a sharpened chisel is your angry tongue
and with your tool you carve the pain I feel
each time all of your hurtful words are flung

You slash me as you twist the words I say
within you no compassion can be found
as pieces of my heart are chipped away
and die in crimson piles upon the ground

I question what lies in your evil mind
you act as if you are too blind to see
the way you hurt me with your words unkind
and how your vicious tool has damaged me

Why do you say you love me like you do
when your cold heart is dead and icy blue?

    Robin, who could hurt you this way? Inquiring minds want to know! Check your soupmail. And thanks for reading "Robbing the Dead." I took your advice. Carolyn

    While the form and flow are perfect, the content leaves me sad knowing that someone would do all this. I hope for the best for you, very good writing. Michael

    Wow Robin! A hardened heart can be vicious. I thought your chisel analogies captured your pain, well painfully. Keep writing. It is such an outlet for bottled emotion and you obviously have a way with words. I am sorry for your emotional suffering. Randy

    The voice in this piece really fire shots with the tongue..so well expressed..I can feel the disgust and disappointment in the piece..some wonderful lines..well done Robin.
