Why Are Thee As Cold As A Winter’s Day?

Why are thee as cold as a winter’s day?
Thy resounding radiance of thy love
Hath fallen like snow in this month of May.
This is so uncharacteristic of
Thy character that hath always been hot
For me.  Thy soul seems tempered, tired and 
Bitter cold, causing thy warm heart to stop
And shiver as I grasp your chilly hand.
Hath thee found a fresher sun to brighten	
Thy sultry smile from a frozen frown?
Does thou not adore me, please enlighten?
My memory, my mind is freezing down.
	Thy fierce blaze of thy love has embarked,
                Thy flames put out, thy fire now a spark.
