Ice'd Lullabye

Ice'd Lullabye

A Poem by Frieda P

Your untouchable promises
     chill'd in my veins
my fragile posies were left
           out in the frosted reign
swept me up in your darkly 
                 abstruse sweetness
etch'd love songs
          on my skin's tremblings
prayers that were answer'd
          with sad weakness
lullabies dull'd my sensibilities
        and dying fortitude
fell on my knees upon
         my own strangled heart
rescuing  me from myself,
          you brush'd lusty tendrils aside
in contemptible silent sighs,
               from the depths of apathy
i need your emptiness to 
      fill my void'd briny spirit
frosted over my convictions,
             i lie frozen in icy drifts of regret

This poem is so powerful I'm having a hard time finding the right words to express how I feel about it, Frieda! It's rare that I'm at a loss for words, but I think this is one of those cases.

Nonetheless, I still like it; if you moved me that much, I suppose you've done your job!!

You're so sweet Stella, thanks so much for your kind words.
This poem is absolutely beautiful, short and very powerful. I also like the unique arrangement, looks different from the usual. I'm not sure if it was deliberate and was supposed to bring out an effect
