Heart on ice

The ice stands
like a force field between us
I can see into it
but not get through
your heart is frozen inside
and I am unable to thaw it
only you
can warm it
back to beating and alive
if you chose to
but perhaps you enjoy
the cold and bitter home
you have made for it now
a defensive case
so that no one can
touch or injure it
keep it on ice if you chose
I prefer mine to beat
lively and full of love
that is, after all,
what hearts were made for…
I will risk getting it broken
as long as it can beat
and has a chance of
warming another.
