To end in ice

To end in ice

A Poem by em810

She walks on and on and on

Her feet don’t tire

But muscles begin to fade

Her strength wavers

Eyes flash

 

It’s ice cold

The ground

The air

Her finger tips

Every vibration

Is a sensation

 

But the pain

The everyday burn

Sinks deeper

Flowing

Deep inside the cavities of the heart

Turning tissue to metal

The gears are put in place

Face goes blank

 

She keeps on and on and on

Facing a fence

But she’s lost her key

And it grows

Taller and taller

Unable to climb

Unable to move

Unable to stand still

Without a place

 

She collapses

I feel it in my veins

Liquid metal courses through

Golden hair and platinum eyes

Silver skin and chrome-colored nails

She’s so far gone

She left a long time ago

 

A steely heart is much

Much better than

A vulnerable one

Exposed

For all the world to see

The cracks and scars and burns and

Well she thought so

 

You did it

You did it

You did it

 

I breathe on and on and on

But

One day

It stops

I choke

And I gasp

But my heart hasn’t turned to stone

It’s just frozen

Because the world was to end in ice
