Melting (Poem)

Emelina Brown



The brutal wind never cracked my facade

But the cold hearts pierce my soul

I have delighted and listened and sheltered

But I have never felt so alone

I was unshakable, unforgiving

My tips were stronger than the hardness of you

I should be able to outlast the stars

But my time is coming soon

My crystals are warping

Droplets slither down

I fade away into the blue

Never to be found

I once stood tall

A sight to fear

Now I fall

Shedding tears

Fear me

Once more

Hate me

No more


The night


The ice
