Being closed off and aloof it is impossible for anyone to break through the deafening silence Your cold, frigid heart will likely never thaw What will it take to reach you once more Or will you forever be the ice man Frozen in time Copyright © 2023 Christine Bolton - Poetry for Healing All Rights Reserved Mish is hosting Monday Quadrille at D’Verse Poets. She has promoted us to write a quadrille (a poem of no more than 44 words) using any form of the word Ice
Unfortunately, some hearts are hard to thaw. As, a reader I can feel the coldness.
Yes Trudessa they are cold and usually unforgiving. Brrrr! 🥶
sounds like my ex-husband. It’s so unfortunate the thickness of the ice ever-thickens 🙁
Yes, it’s very ugly to look at, isn’t it? 😕
I think once frozen like that, thaw will never come.
Yea, I agree. Why use your energy picking away at someone that doesn’t want to thaw.
A torch might be useful. Well done!
Lol! Thanks Susan 🤣
A perfect picture of the Ice Man for sure!!! It’s hard to survive in a relationship with this type of person isn’t it? Your first three lines say it all! Someone has to want to change and it seems that Ice Men are frozen to the way they want it. Bellissimo, Christine,Bellissimo!! Thanks for the seeds of inspiration!!!
Thanks Chuck. Yea, let those seeds germinate my friend and bring us more of your fabulous writing ☺️💕🌹
Sometimes we need a bigger flame to melt those types of hearts. I like the use of “ice man”.
Thanks Mish. Bugger and hitter to melt him! 🤣
Wow – very powerful, Christine.
Thank you David ☺️💕
Those icy hearts are hard to penetrate with love’s warmth.
Yes M Jay. Cant even melt them 😳
I like that ice man image. I can picture it clearly. Good one.
Thanks very much K. Reminds me of that old Foreigner song, Cold as Ice.
You’ve described a socially hostile person.
I think he’s just anti social Sadje. Better he stays iced up and out of the way 🤣
Yes, that would be better all around.
Hopefully not, but only time will tell. Nice poem.
Thank you! I really appreciate it. ☺️💕
