Gah! My first and final attempt at a love-poem. I think I should concentrate on my prose, to prevent further disgrace through my abysmal poetry.
You haunt the visions that I see,
Appear, a phantom of my wanderings,
Glide smoothly into my cavern of musings, unnoticed,
Till I sense your warmth - a hallucination -
And I banish you.
Your timid emotions
Sometimes I sense,
Reaching out through soundless words.
Then your dark mask falls back over your eyes,
And I know my lying ears have deceived me once again.
You skim over the waters of my heart,
But I have frozen them over,
And your intricate scheming
As you skate over
Does not confuse me, nor mark me.
You will never hold my soul, and squeeze it,
Granite barriers I have erected
To keep you and your elvenfolk away.
Never will I pine for you, hypocrite -
You have not the courage to face your truth.
And then I see your smile in the corners of my mind,
And I hear your voice through deaf ears,
And I know that my ice is melting already.
