Water is Frozen This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

They say I am the ice queen
Ice Queen? maybe
My words may cut like a knife
And leave behind a cold sting
They may even make you feel frozen
But is that me?
Am I ice?
I still feel, I still am human
It is assumed I'm cold inside and out
That the hardness is unrelenting
I just get worse the farther in you search
Do I even have a heart?
Not according to them
I'm just a faceless bully
Caring only for myself
I'm not afraid to run you over
A glacier, I will crush you
A statue, I care not for you
I am beautiful, but untouchable
Be careful, I have sharp edges
But what is this?
But liquid ice, rolling down my
featureless surface?
The ice queen is not melting
The ice queen is not crying
The ice queen is disappearing
If I cannot be ice
I will be nothing at all
