Your eyes,
Dark,
Iced,
Tunnels of despair,
Interrogating my soul,
Judging my moves,
Watching me dance,

Your smirk,
Corners of your fleshy lips,
Twitch upward,
Contempt,
Sneering, sniggering,
Degrading,

Your heart,
Black,
Numbed,
Bitter emotions’ haven,
All love and care misplaced,
All respect for no one,
All affection for yourself,

One glance,
And a wave of arctic loathing pulls me under tide,
Chills swept over my body,
Enveloping me in their acidic mist,

One by one,
Inching upward,
Changing each segment of my soft,
Smooth, warm, skin,
Into freezing, rough, hard, blocks of ice,
Rooting me to my place,
As they passed me through
