Alone in a Frozen Ice---World.

Updated on January 5, 2013

I look down at my feet, bare upon the solid ice,

The smooth, thick ice holds my feet so tight.

I cannot move.

My toes are turning blue.

How did it come to this?.

Was it your fault?

Was it mine?,

Or did we let other people "in".?


My feet are getting colder, as I look down again,

Silence in the atmosphere, apart from gentle throbbing

of my pain.

Oh! What has brought me here again?.


I loved enough, or did I ?

You loved me, that I know.

Yet Here I stand in this frozen world again,

Left alone to think, of how I have returned

to this frozen waste.

No mobile phones in this ice-----.land,

No way to call for help.

My own wits are my only source of answers.

I see the fir trees in the distance, Most are covered with snow,

How beautiful they look as I see a shard of green,

amongst the grey and white, that´s everywhere.

The green is like a life--line.

A border to this Ice-world, but my feet, they stil

are captured skin upon the ice.


Apendages are falling off..... My nose, my fingers......

NO! They´re not. It only feels that way.

Suddenly I scream as my feet feel torn from skin,

Skin left upon the ice as I am whisked aloft.

My face is turned into a shoulder, as strong arms

lift me high. I´m carried through the ice and wind, then snow

I´ve no idea who is here or where it is I go.....

But soon I´m sitting on your knees, a fire is aglow,

Your warm arms are enfolding me as a fleece warm

blanket is wrapped around my feet..

The ice---world is behind me.

My feet are thawing out,

I dare to lift my face and look.....

I look into your eyes and know , your love has

overpowered yet again.Safe..I am , because of you, again.

    Hello Dim, this was such a deep profound poem. It reminded me of a broken heart, that is numb from the brokenness. At the brink of despair. Just when death is so close and there seems like there is no hope, God reaches down and showers the heart with love. Thank you for sharing. I really loved this. Happy New Year my friend. Wishing you many blessings from above.

    you took me, dear friend, into a profoundly beautiful dream world of impressionistic poetic imagery and the sounds of Debussy or Satie - thank you for taking me away - my cinematic heart is pounding after reading this one - hubwow is the word of the day and sending you my cherished good thoughts and good energy from lake erie time ontario canada 5:39pm with the diminishing red sky in the west calling for the end of the day
