It never takes long

light seeps through the cracks in my heart

Like the first rays of sun after a thunderstorm

Maybe this time the cracks will split open,

hope will shine through

The dark sky will finally be clear

or maybe not

it never takes long for the cracks to close

it never takes long for the rain to fall again

Fire and Ice

Before you my heart was like a candle,

it burned with love.

I wore it on my sleeve.

my heart was like a doorway,

letting everyone in.

I had no boundaries, kept no one out.

On that fateful day,

I let you in.

At first everything was fine,

My love for you was fierce and strong.

The candle burned brighter than ever.

Then, without warning,

you swept through like a snowstorm.

The candle went out.

My heart turned to ice.

Every excuse you made, every time you

ignored me, the ice cracked,

until eventually it broke.

Now i’m afraid my heart will never burn bright again.
