broken ice

Heart breaking ice 
I have been bitten 
In the deepest 
chambers 
Cold black 
frosted ice 
Cracks begin 
Showing 

Watch where 
you are skating 
Oh but I 
am not depressed 
In fact 
the very opposite 
Raging mad 
Like a red rag 
to a bull 

A bird dirtied 
on the nest 
Blowing 
the main fuse 
Like a flash 
of lightning 
Heartless burning 
Deep inside 

Beyond 
my wildest belief 
To have the nerve 
Cold as steel 
I shake your hand 

Tainted 
my little paradise 
Drawing the past 
latest conquest 
A place dear to me 
Were I grew up 

Laughter and happiness 
echoes 
In the mind beautiful 
I have no words 
to say 
Cutting 

in blue cold steel 
On the blades edge 
On thin ice 
Breaking up 

I say forward 
Driving it in 
The dagger opening 
a deep wound 
In the heart

    I love the imagery in this poem! I love the comparison to the cracking of ice and a broken heart. This gives new meaning to the phrase "cold-hearted"! A very deep and emotional piece, Liam. Excellent poetry!

    The opening line said it all Liam, then you ended it off with the dagger part.. Your brought that feeling across brilliantly with this piece..
