The Frozen Heart

My heart is caged in ice
Protected by covering of snow
Secluded, alone but safe
Yet, it wants to break the covering
But, the ice is too strong

I decorate its cage with snowflakes
And dried flower dust
I request it to remain
Hidden from everything outside
Away from the world

It fights me as I talk to people
Willing to break free
I don't want to mess up
I don't want to be taken advantage of
So, I contain it there

Late under moonlight
When its just me, the wind and moon
I feel spring come up, I hear the ice cracking
And nestle my heart in my warmth
Asking it to not be grieved, I forever know its here

  1. Omg this was so lovely ❄❄ Each line has so much power. I really loved “I decorate its cage with snowflakes
    And dried flower dust” you must have put a lot of thought into it and it came out wonderfully!
    And even this “I feel spring come up, I hear the ice cracking
    And nestle my heart in my warmth” PERFECTION😊
