Like Ice --- THE WALTZ

"Black Ice"

Sorrow flows from the first sunrise 
Eyes deeper than winter and rainfall
A painful combination never felt before 
At core death awaits
   - laughing while she begs for clemency!
In her eyes, fault is found in every sunset
   - after coming down from cloud nine.
Impossible to move --- her body stiffen
That very moment, A precious Waltz - Expired!
Coldplay and winter mist set in 
Ruins of love clinch an endless echo 
  - taunting the very merry memory.
The auditory sensation of broken trust 
   - stride across the way.
Icing every thought in a sullen, cold rink. 
She fell - She crumbled 
  - In a world where hope once existed 

Today, she will sway alone without a lullaby
In a room with no warmth 
One time a sweet symphony, now a sour moon 
 At last, a different tune begins to fiddle
As she grooms the icicles in her room.
On every mid-moon, she stares and stares
  towards the old shriveled lipstick on his pillow 
Unseen coldness, unsatisfied, incomplete tears
She can feel the complete braille of hate 
--- cascade around the emptiness

Throughout her poise frostbite travels in
Midnight Summer dreams are near an end
Autumn bones covered by winter sleet 
A deadly force condemns all because of one 

Lost years crumbled like an avalanche 
Way deep down inside....... 
She paints the rain like no other heartache
Leaving winter residue behind every step
"Black Ice" sits close to the cold canvas on her pale

If you seek 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, read this through a few times. Not being a great poet myself. I first saw Mother Nature in all her moods. Then I saw an unrequited love, Then A woman scorned and rejected looking back on her life. Maybe all totally wrong but I still loved this great write. A definite 7 in the old days. God Bless. D.

Emotionally provoking and cause for reflection of a few waltz's in my own past. It brought forth imagery that guided the emotional journey, nicely done. :)

PD-- I'm trying to reach you to check to see if you have a way to contact Billy the Kidster. If you have his phone number please call him ASAP. He's in a bad way and I'm worried about his blood pressure and heart rate! He needs to talk to someone -- I mean a friend!--- and to also go to the hospital. I'm very worried! - cyndi

This is sensuous, imaginative, thought provoking, descriptive, and creative all rolled up into a beautiful poem. The words are magical and beautifully expressed in a sea of swirling phrases that dance upon the tongue. The imagery and shear beauty of your words are impressively seasoned by a extensive vocabulary and fill the page with their magic pallet of colors. Emile.
