    An Unfrozen Heart

    Inflexible, intractable, even adamantine
    is an ice chiseled heart's refrigerated sunshine,
    chilling its warmth to freeze its rays
    to block Love's penetrating singeing blaze.

    If gloom within such heart does loom
    as an unlived mansion with unlit rooms,
    then one ray of Love's illumined heat
    will unleash hot breaths of Life's light beat,
    deicing, defrosting floors and doors
    of this mansion's wind frozen corridors.

    Then gloom can't rest in Life's light heart.
    There's no room left from end to start.
    For the heart yearns now for light displays
    of Love's penetrating singeing blaze.

    Absolutely exquisite!

    The imagery you gave me was....cascades of water from the melted ice flowing down stairs, making waterfalls over banisters, rushing and bursting through once locked doors and purifying every heart in its path.


    And you get extra kudos for using "adamantine!' :bowdown:

    I loved this poem, and I swear It describes just how a broken heart feels.Been there baby and I ain't going back.However it comes, I'll accept it gracefully,saving each ounce of pain as a memory, just so my heart will never forget, that life yields no regrets!
    Bless up poet! :)

    Rich – If there is one thing Love will do and that is melt you down. And then after, its designed to blow you up. Either way, you become transformed. Thanks Rich. Namyh

    Waz – A single ray of light will illuminate a dark room. One sliver of BTU will melt an ice cube. And one drop of Love will thaw a frozen heart. Glad you felt the warmth Waz. Now I'm starting to unfreeze. Namyh

    CherryBlossom – Wow Cherry Blossom ! Thanks for making the imagery expand even more with your words. I can feel the cascades, the melting and the water falling over everything. Hey! Somebody get me a towel and a Sprite. I got clean-up to do. Thanks CB for your enjoyment. Namyh
