Like Fire to Ice

Like Fire to Ice

A Poem by Final-Karma
"

Addiction is the catalyst.

"
She haunts the room
Center of attention
Traveling her steps 
Eyes flourished but blind

Stellar traces 
As she stands in place
Making contact 
Her cold hands on your face

Devour Fates kiss
Lips dripping with poison
Her chateau of power
Sweet nectar of corrosion 

Locked 
A dance with Death
Her silver sliver flowing
Like mercury over my mind

Undress to press
Her veil empty 
Hollowed tube stings
The beast shows its fangs

Time lost to motion
Memory an echoed sound
She comes apart for me
Dissolving under pressure

She shows all of her 
Lying awake 
Her face is different 
A drip of red

So I wake 
Drenched in warmth
Her cold figure 
Held liquid fire

Those once empty eyes
Finally leaving with a smile
Her final recital
Performing for the universe to watch

She never had a chance
A lonely lost girl 
Surrounded by fans 
Silently screaming for help

Now she walks step by step
With me she feels a place
A home to lay her head
Forever 

In Death's embrace

Given the description at the beginning and the ensuing words of the poem, this piece made me think this was a heroin addicts final trip. Which, holy s**t, how dark is that! But you wrote it so well, it really could have been anything. I just liked the imagery of it all, very powerful. You have a strong voice. Keep it up and happy writing!

Wow. It's so cold, and dark. The warmth I feel is portrayed as a memory, and so distant. You're writing style is so mature. Really good work! I look forward to your future writings. :)

This is super clean, it's intricate and interesting, delicate and thought-provoking.
These are my favorite:

Time lost to motion
Memory an echoed sound
She comes apart for me
Dissolving under pressure

She shows all of her
Lying awake
Her face is different
A drip of red

Thank you! I tried by best to keep it simple.
Interesting poem. I find that the fire and Ice are powerful ingredients for the relationship between people. Its like a person's spirit, presence, and even their essence is the fire we're fond of. Yet, death blows out the flames of will to cover them with our dread of Ice. Very nice work and keep writing. :)

This is a beautifully eerie piece. Haunting. For what it's worth, my images upon reading this were of the vampire or similar creature from the dark world who is about to finally expire. It's said that at these moments one briefly sees again the wretched human whose body they have occupied before both finally perish. I can't quite tie this in with your note about addiction, but hey. (typo - did you mean surround(ed) by fans?)

Nice work

Beautiful!
What I believe is the said individual went through an ego death.
To in which you were there to help her pick up her own pieces.
I would suggest showing it to your significant other if you haven't already.
