Melt My Heart

Hardened and solid white
thinly coated in icy tears,
so cold becomes the heart
devoid of love for many years.

No fires kindled in it's chambers
the beat still steady, but growing faint,
I accepted it and did not care
to even issue a complaint.

Time ticks on and changes hearts
even the ones that cannot feel,
I needed to know about love
what its like when it's for real.

So caress this heart of mine
so gingerly as you take,
because a heart so frozen
can still crack and break.

Let it melt away slowly
instead of rushing to defrost,
with gentle warmth near me
all fears will become lost.

My shyness, too, disappears
when trust is truly found,
resting in your palms
fingertips embraced around.

My heart is your trinket now
held closely to your own,
heating to a glowing red
what once was cold as stone.
