Shades Drawn On Romance

Shades drawn
on romance,
I sit in my skin
dormant,
passion buried
beneath the
rubble
of failed
attempts
to stoke
Aphrodite’s fire.

Our love covered
in winter frost
has my tears
skating on
a frozen pond.
I pray spring
will come
to thaw the ice
before my
heart dies
from frost bite.
