The Ice Queen

 

The Ice Queen rules with a hand of steel

Captures her prey, she will make no deal

Glittery gray eyes shine hypnotic appeal

Takes the love of a friend to break the seal

---------------------------------------------------

The Ice Queen has skin with a frosty feel

Blueblood frozen concoction of congeal

One touch is sufficient to induce the unreal

Takes the love of a friend to break the seal

---------------------------------------------------

The Ice Queen demands all subjects kneel

Voice of reason chokes on the meal

No heart, no fear, your’s she will steal

Takes the love of a friend to break the seal

---------------------------------------------------

The Ice Queen hands hold the ethereal

Break and crush the fragile material

Consumes and destroys any lofty ideal

Takes the love of a friend to break the seal

---------------------------------------------------

The Ice Queen heart has nothing to reveal

Love, virtue and humanity, absent and surreal

Ice is the fuel that generates her zeal

Takes the love of a friend to break the seal

----------------------------------------------------

I freakin love it! I'm going to put it to music and see what happens. I wrote a song called Ghetto Queen. I'm going to steal the music from that and put it to this song. This has good rythm and flow, not to mention killer lyrics.

The Ice Queen is Queen, she is not mean, she's the sweetest thing you ever seen. God Bless Amy

Thank you for your poetic words, vietnamvet68...but, she is MEAN! She is one, cold bi-ch! She has her magic to lure the innocent into her clutches. That's what makes her so dangerous. Thanks for the poetry, vietnamvet, now I can say "I've arrived".

All hail the Ice queen

To be heard and not to be seen

But inside that frosty sheen

I've seen a love machine!

This is so terrific that I am breaking out in verses!

Love it.

Colin B. Demille (the infamous hub film director) knows that a song is good for this Ice Queen but he also realizes that if Muddy Waters ever met the fabulous Ms. Becherer that he would get his mojo working in no time flat and that would have to lead to my directorial debut here at the Hub including a cast of thousands - yes thousands of admirers as far as the 3-D eye could see - and we need a leading lady for the part - how about Angelina Jolie - or Julie Christie in her prime and how she looked so radiant in Dr. Zhivago - wait just a minute my casting director and I are having a creative brainstorm - and he has suggested that the leading lady could be that ravishing beauty (ravishing as in a buffet of leading ladies all combined into one) and there she is - in the top right hand corner of her hub profile page wearing a cowgirl hat and leaning against some lucky car - isn't that the fabulous Ms. Becherer - and just by looking at her she melts my heart - not to mention the privilege of reading these words which seem destined to be translated into a screen adaptation of

THE ICE QUEEN!

Amy, you have changed my life. Prior to meeting you I would have not spent even a minute reading this hub. Now I check every morning to see if you have written anything new. I thoroughly enjoy what you write, and have gained a new appreciation for those who have the ability to write in this style. Just wait till Jim puts this to music, it will be fantastic.

Dear Docmo, Your version of the Ice Queen is supreme! I love hearing from you. Your comments have the same divine quality as the rest of your writing and are always much appreciated. Thank you!

Dearest Colin B. Demille, Only you, magnificent director, could stage a review of such monumental proportions, that take this reader to the heights of cinematic imaginings, perchance to dream in the land of The Ice Queen. But, the Queen could not live in a land of such warmth and love. But, I, a commoner, thrive and am thrilled at your words and will read and re-read...and then daydream! Epigramman, your artistry and imagination are beyond any fairytail I have ever seen and I am honored you directed it at me.

Dear Mike, your words make my heart soar they are so beautiful. What I have gained is far and above anything I could ever write...you, as a friend. I look at this page and I will read it often to see the love, the support, the encouragement of the best people I have ever known. To say you and everyone here are my friends is the best part of my life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, surrounded by so much warmth, will never turn to ice.

breakfastpop, I hear you and even one of your warm, wonderful, breakfasts complete with unlimited cups of the best hot coffee wouldn't take the chill off this character! Glad to know she's in your past! Thanks for visiting. I saw your name and you reminded me, "I better get that cup of joe"!

I see you understand, Augustine, the difficulty in breaking the seal. There is magnetic appeal in trying to defrost such a queen. Thank you for your comment. It gave me chills.

The Ice Queen holds many in thrall - I was once! LOL! Luckily a friend did break the seal for me or I would still be frozen!

Wonderful poem - thanks for sharing it.

Love and peace

Thank you, tonymac04. It seems her demonic, mesmerizing clutches have applied a vise grip tightly around the anatomy of many men. She is a force to be reckoned with and not easy to lose. Appreciate your visit and comment, as always, Tony.

If your personal Ice Queen you want to save,

Just turn up the heat, but not the microwave.

She will respond with much love and sweet kisses,

But whatever you do, sir, don't tell your missus. :)

Dear drbj, I think your Ice Queen is an idealized version of any I've seen. You may want to consider the microwave, my friend. Thank you for your clever and creative comments. I'm going to your latest interview next!

Hi there, Carolineeexx3, thanks for visiting. I'm going to check out the further adventures of your interesting cast of characters right after I check out drbj's latest interview with, no less, Jack the Ripper!

In every ice queen lays a warm heart firmly sealed – it does take the love of a friend to break the seal. And what did I say about your poems/lyrics waiting for songs to be composed? Here you have it now – ManWithNoPants discovered you :)))) Tot weersiens!


Amy Becherer profile image

Amy Becherer 5 years ago from St. Louis, MO Author

Dear Martie, I'm so glad to see you here. You will be the first for today, Wednesday, January 5th on my "grateful for" list! Now, I know I should be able to figure out "Tot weersiens", but I don't want to assume. Please tell me, my friend, so I know know the exact translation.

It would be a thrill, a "kick", if you will, to have my words set to music! Actually, Martie, just the idea is enough to make me grateful...for you and all these wonderful friends. Each one touches my heart.

I hope your holiday was the best, Martie.

Hi Amy, my holiday is almost over. Coming Monday it is back to work for me.

Afrikaans: Tot weersiens (a more popular word is ‘totsiens’)

English: Until we see each other again (more popular: ‘goodbye’.... ‘see ya’ :)))

German: auf wedersehn

I guess you can write a poem with all the ways to say hallo and goodbye in all languages. Take care, dear Amy. You are truly a sparkling star. BTW, what is your sun sign?

Amy Becherer 5 years ago from St. Louis, MO Author

I am an aquarius, Martie. I bet you would have guessed. Thank you for the translation, my friend. Language is fascinating and an amazing and awesome study that could take more than a lifetime. I have always been in complete awe at the derivatives of words...how they are connected to each other within a language and then to other languages...the inception of the written language is such brilliance...building on itself. It is a feat to rival the Great Pyramids! Enjoy your return to work as much as your holiday, Martie!

All my queens are ice cold. We need some good sunshine to melt some hearts maybe. Thank you ma'am!


Amy Becherer profile image

Amy Becherer 5 years ago from St. Louis, MO Author

Those Queenly sorts love the song "You're as cold as Ice". Therein lays there power. Those ensnared spend their days and nights "trying to please the Queen". You don't melt their hearts...warmth would end their reign. They would cease to exist or die trying. Their success depends on ego...not just their own...there is something to be gained by cohorts...feeling "they must be the best if they please the Queen" drives them onward in their fruitless quest. But, the Queen will win because she has no heart to break. Thank you for reading this and commenting, Mickey Dee. Stay warm.

Can I assume this is a "self-reference"? As the "Rolling Stones" sang...you'll never break, never break, never break...this heart of stone, no, no, no, this heart of stone. Liked it! WB

Amy Becherer 5 years ago from St. Louis, MO Author

No, I'm no ice queen, that's for sure. I sometimes wish I could be. It references someone I dealt with that I extricated myself from. She did bring out the bitch in me, but with a little help from my friends, I fled her demanding clutches before my blood congealed. Thank you for stopping for a visit and your commentary, Wayne.

They have their initial magic, but unless you like to be blue after their blitzkrieg, run while you can. Thanks, saddlerider! As always, appreciate your visit. Stay warned and warm.
