Ice King

He grew within a frigid place
No one thought those legs would ever part
A Dark Prince thawed her frozen heart

A member long and stiff like ice
Penetrates
Cuts through the cold
His seed 
His power
They both take hold
Invade
Satiate
Invigorate
Skin white as snow
begins to glow
A subtle blush
She feels the rush
Heated up
Ever so slightly
His cold blue eyes 
shine brightly

She screams in the night
Pleasurable blue light
Her senses take flight

Then the dark prince goes away
The night was night and this is day
There's no desire in him to stay
With a heavy heart on the bed she lay
For him just a thing of play

Inside
His seed
Her baby grows
What is happening 
she does not know
Pulse is rapid it will not slow

Her red veins 
turn to blue
There is nothing 
she can do
Her heart now frozen
a block of ice
She thinks cold thoughts
that are not nice
Inside the child feeds on her
The days and nights become a blur

In the middle of winter
The Ice King is born
From fragile womb 
his body torn
Arrival accompanied 
by a storm

Those present become statued ice
The King extracts his sacrifice
His mother spared
To her his love he shows
She wraps him in blanket 
of pure white snow
His skin translucent 
begins to glow

All of a sudden
the Dark Prince appears
He commands bring the baby over here
I wish to gaze upon my son
He is a truly magnificent one

He looks closely at the baby's face
Resemblance more than just a trace
Blue eyes dark they extract a toll
Sucking up the Prince's soul
The Ice King
emerges 
fully grown
Regally rises to take his throne

Mother cries
Blue magical tears
Time for coronation 
Rapidly nears
Diamonds fall 
onto the ground
Placed in ice
The King is crowned

Thanks to Leonora Galinta for letting me weave a story
with her Ice King. Yanny's Dark Prince has also played a roll.
Also thanks to SKAT for posting the Ice King Contest,
if she increases the number of lines I will enter.
I wrote this one before I knew there was a contest.

    Yes, I can tell it's different somehow. Where did you make the most changes?

    I fleshed out some of the stanza's that I felt didn't flow. It was a good skeleton to start with but I didn't feel I had fully develop my thoughts.

    The second time round is the charm; I like it even more then the first. The ending seems to have changed a little bit and some to the content in the middle has changed. Phenomenal poem.

    Thanks Casey, sometimes when you do a rewrite it can lose something. I'm glad that wasn't the case here.

    This is really great my dear friend Richard! You really penned a perfect & real epic. Excellent beginning up to the end. For me, this is really difficult like free verses. But you did it very well with lofty imagination and creativity! Hugging you so big big here & thank you so much for using my short poem as one of your inspirations. It's a great honor. Again, so much thanks! How I wish you can enter this in our dear friend Skat's contest. Wish you all the best! love lots, Leonora

    An incredible fantasy! By the way, in regards to the 'Girl Rising' contest, I wrote a little something last night. It's not as crisp as I'd like it to be, however, should I keep the same title or create a title of my own?...Milt

    gosh, now this really is EPIC. I couldn't figure out what Skat meant by epic but I think this would fit the bill. Yes, I didn't get why she said epic but also haiku/senryu , so I have a haiku set ready to post but nothing epic like this one!!! Very imaginative this is.

    Quite a tale, Richard....you are going in a different route than I'm used to lately with some of your work....I read this one through twice. Wish I could catch everything.....Interesting imagery...Have a good evening and night

    Creativity is always a good thing, Richard. Exploring and trying out new things and stretching your wings. Maybe it's just me. I feel a little lost in the words. Your earlier work just brought things home so powerfully...There is also a bit of the darker side in your writes now...I'm not used to that. I'm not sure how to answer you.... :) Did I make any sense?
