Heart of ice

A fire burned deep within his soul
 for her,  but she was  aloof  and cold as ice
As his  desire blazed out of control

Her frosty emotions  became  her purposed   role
the flames of warmth could not make her nice
A fire burned deep within  his soul

No spark of love could make her whole
the embers of passion were a roll of the dice
As his desire blazed out of control

The  fire blazed from his head to his soles
her icy demeanor was her only vice
A fire burned deep within his soul

Her   frosty heart  like an avalanche rolled
a   frigid  smile would have to suffice
As his desire blazed out of control

 But her heart of ice he could not cajole
With  tears and despair  she paid the price
A fire burned deep within his soul
As his desire blazed out of control

    hey, you had the opposite scenario. My woman was the fire and the man was of ice!! It's sure nice to see you trying new forms like the Terzanelle, Joseph. Good luck in this contest.
