Fire and Ice

A fire, a deep burning passion,
Flaming hot, searing,
Engulfing all; flowing
Up and down the body:
Head, fingertips, toes.
Love, a wanting, an obsession.
A burning desire to be with the perfect one.
A longing to finally be together.
Ice, cool indifference,
Freezing everything in its path.
Stopping passionate blood cold.
Steel eyes, cold hands, chilling words.
A cold snowstorm amidst a fiery realm.
Frigid, uncaring, unwanting.
A glass heart, frozen, falls to the ground.
An undying love, unquenched, rejected.
A passionate flame burns out
In the face of an ice man.
A love that was never returned,
Never had a chance
Gone forever.
