Cold.

Cold.

A Poem by Nikolean
"

they call her cold. her heart is ice.

"
--- they say I am an ice woman
     constantly dealing in the hearts of others
     but never giving my own away
     I call myself a cautious woman
     but they say I never hesitate
     to break hearts as I go my own way.
     it is not that I wish to--
     I choose to keep myself at arm's length
     because I know they'll never stay.

A brief but insightful character study here. The speaker has been deeply hurt at some time in the past, the result being she never lets anyone get too close to her. We must wonder if the desire for love will eventually break through the emotional scar tissue. Well done.
