this poem is  meant for the Ice king contest. Written about the cold fierce childhood this character had in memory and the damage it did to him. A parent who doesn't show love is rock hard frigid. 
Ice King By Karl Marszalowicz Null in the numbness Defunct system collapsing His blight in my hand Abuses don't melt Reliving a time of need Cold words blistered me Crying icicles Shattering a childhood He liked me frost bit
