You have the coldest touch
my skin has ever known
firm, unyielding, steady, and painful
in your grasp
holding me tighter the harder I try to get away, the more I try to let go.
shed with emotion so fierce
I could summon a snowstorm.
Pain from you words hurts me like cold wind to my face
and sometimes they have lasting stings
making red welts on my skin that hurt to the touch,
So I don’t touch them;
instead I find new sources of hurt to focus on.
Understand why sometimes I am distant,
You made me this way.
Sometimes your words are sweet and kind
And I find it difficult to believe that such warmth can escape from your lips.
And when you try to touch me,
I flinch and you get upset
So I laugh.
Making you cold again.
But I love you, I love you, I love you,
I’ll love you until you learn how to love me back.
call me your Ice Lady;
Maybe we can weather this storm together
In Lover’s Winter Wonderland.
