Ice King

The Ice King sits upon his throne
No queen for him he is alone

He looks on earth to find a bride
Each girl he kissed has sadly died

His lips so cold their warmth is stole
He must find one to quench his soul

He is a man and has his needs
On others warmth is how he feeds

Within the cold there is desire
He seeks a woman with some fire

SKAT's Ice King Contest.

By; Richard Lamoureux

So I put a ice cube in my hand and the thing that struck me initially 
as well as being cold it felt dry. Also the ice created a burning sensation
as it began to melt the feel of the liquid in my palm was more pleasurable
I liked how it felt melting between my fingers, almost sensual. The end 
result ice fire and sensuality.

    Thanks Craig, I don't know if you read my original Ice King Poem. I wrote it before I knew there was a contest and it was too long to enter.

    Wow! For me this is really a great epic in a couplet form my dear friend Richard. You made it extraordinarily well. I also love your brilliant idea & the ending is great...:))) A winner for sure. I swear. Thank you so much for inviting me to read. It's a great honor. However, I'm so sorry for coming late because I'm always super duper busy @ school (Mon-Sat). Excellent piece & Kudos here! My fave. Again, thank you so much! love lots & big big hugs, Leonora

    Holding an ice cube is suppose to be a form of distraction when your thoughts are wandering. Sometimes it works and is for sure cold. 1st one here to.Colleen
