"Fire and Ice"

"Fire and Ice"

A Poem by Valentine

 

      "Fire and Ice"

 
He spent his life all alone...out in the cold;
Going around in circles, feeling so terribly old.
She was warmth, love, heat, and molten fire;
Bringing life to those...she did love and admire.
 
He was stone, ice... and molten cold steel.
No real life in his soul...his pain was left, unhealed.
She was life...all fire...torrid and hot.
Everything of value in life...that..he was not.
 
When they met, she tried hard to warm his soul;
But it had been frozen...many long years ago.
Her warmth and passion, ached and longed for his heart.
His icy indifference...often tore her soul apart.
 
When ever they did happen, by chance to meet;
She thought he responded at once...to her heat.
At times his slight response, lit up his whole face;
Many others time, he would only show a trace.
 
For so many years...they both remained alone;
One cold and indifferent, the other passionate...all hope gone.
She hoped one day to reach him, to give him her love;
But it seemed she needed help...from the "One" above.
 
How can one care so much...the other be so cold?
Why must they remain alone continuing to grow old?
Why couldn't she see...that he did not have a heart?
With so much love to give...couldn't he accept a part?
 
You see, one is the "moon", the other is the "sun."
He reflects the suns light...as he has no light of his own.

I think we can most of us relate to both these sides of people, either being or receiving one or the other at various points in our life. Just a pity that when one heart is open, the other is closed, probably by being hurt before and mistrustful of being so again. It Is always the good that suffer, even the person with the closed heart knows the suffering is of their own making, yet can't take the risk of being hurt again.
Beautifully captured Kathie, as ever.

and never the twain shall meet ;) i like the closure i feel in your ending couplet ... even tho sad for "her" its clean and definite ...and as old wisdom tells us ...most likely less painful

Sad reality of life. Some give off light, whilst the other stays in the dark.

A beautiful tale. Had the feel of a Native American tale of the sun and the moon. Two lovers separated forever and always searching for the other. Always a pleasure to read your amazing poetry.
