Ice Castle ~ quadrille

Ice Castle

You fight with fire yet refuse to warm to me.
Years and years of fabrication
after fabrication, building
and rebuilding higher and higher
walls, by a princess in an ice castle,
precarious and perilous,
leave me with no desire
to see those walls melt.

 

 This is my response to dVerse Quadrille 165 – Warmly,
the prompt from Lisa at dVerse ~ Poets Pub,
which is to use a form of the word warm in a 44-word poem
(excluding title), with no required meter or rhyme.

  1. Skilled use of idiom and metaphor here. The message is crystal clear. It’s sad that the person wants to keep the ice barrier up between themself and their loved one. Hoping something along the way shifts and the wall will melt to find a less deceitful person standing there.
