Like Ice --- THE WALTZ

"Black Ice"

Sorrow flows from the first sunrise 
Her eyes deeper than winter and rainfall
A painful combination never felt before 
At core death awaits ... Silently she begs for mercy!
Finding fault in every sunset
  after coming down from cloud nine.
She can't move  --- her body stiff
A precious Waltz --- Expires!
Coldplay and winter mist remain
Ruins of love and conniving echoes -
   - taunt her merry memories.
The auditory sensation of broken trust 
   begins to spread across the room.
Icing every thought, she sits in a rink. 

Today, she sways alone without a lullaby
In a room with no warmth 
Once a sweet symphony, now a sour moon 
Pieces of icicles break before the season turns 
At last, her heart finds a different tune
All she can remember now is the stain 
   of old shriveled lipstick on his pillow 
Unsatisfied tears turn to unseen coldness
Once in love, now hate satisfies the void 

Frostbite takes course through her poise
Midnight Summer dreams come to an end
Autumn bones are now covered by winter sleet 
Somewhere there a deadly force is waiting,
Condemning all because of one 

Lost years crumble like an avalanche 
Deep down....... 
She paints the rain like no other heartache
Leaving winter residue behind every new step
"Black Ice" around the cold canvas on her look

If you look closely, she is there 
Immobilized in a waltz, in a waltz, in a waltz

Never to linger or trust 
The "HE" that spoke of love, then melted away

    Hi Linda, as always the emotions flow through your work. There is always a beauty found in the sadness. Love can be the greatest joy yet it can be the deepest sorrow. I have felt both emotions many times. Another excellent write from your pen. A well thought out piece Linda. One always feels your poetic words Linda. You bring out the emotions in your readers. A 7 and a fave. Hugs....Mike. XX

    Hi Linda: As always, I was in awe of this sweet and sour poetic edition of love.

    Good piece but one or two thoughts... Immobilized in a waltz? Once a sweet symphony, now a sour dirge.

    I can hear a Greek chorus reciting the lines in a tragedy. I feel it in my bones. So real.. Though sad.. So well done!

    Beautiful and chilling write PDA!..."condemning all because of one"..."frostbite takes course through her poise"...great lines, can so relate!...by the way, she doesn't have to "sway alone without a lullaby"...it just so happens I have one, should you find time to visit. Sincerely the poet/songwriter:)

    Dearest Linda: I especially related to the auditory sensation of broken trust. It really does spread out from you. I have experienced that exact reaction. Gave me goosebumps to read your poem. The metaphors are wonderful and your imagery speaks to the heart. Loved always, SuZ

    Hello my dearest sis-bff! Sadness, heartaches, pains and love loss are superbly portrayed and expressed in your poem. I was totally subdued and compelled to read every line.

    Love may melt into confused tears, yet water the rich soil of souls Linda. Love can bud anew with every season's waltz. I admire how beautifully you show the saddness that can be, in the most natural and majestic of things...J.A.B.
