Thin ice - September 20th 2018, 01:22 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I've been struggling to write anything. I have a few more ideas so I hope I can draw them out soon.

Your selfish heart is colder than a frozen lake
it's so cold that the middle split right in two
There is only so much manipulation I can take
and the drop in temperature started with you
The degrees dipped down lower than my sanity
though your ego somehow remained intact
Parenting was served with a side of vanity
no one ever saw through your act. In fact,
everyone was in complete awe of the show
They think I am lucky to call you my parent
I smile and nod even though I have to know
about the cold that isn't always so apparent
I let people think that you're just the best
that you're sugary sweet and everything nice
Little do they know that you put me to rest
my inner child's soul lies under that ice
Take each of your steps slowly now, my dear
you really don't want that thin ice to crack
Because once you're put to rest down here
you don't have a chance of coming back


When I look into the eyes of an animal
I do not see an animal
I see a living being
I see a friend
I feel a soul.


They whispered to her
you cannot withstand the storm
she whispered back
i am the storm.

I loved this. It was really well written and I loved how descriptive it was. I hope you are doing okay.

I agree that this is definitely a powerful poem. I love the descriptions as well.

I'm always so in awe of the way you write. You have such a way with words, it just floors me every time you post a new piece.
