Breakthrough - Poem by Kristina Louisa Carr

My heart held captured by snow storms
Surrounded by icicles of different forms
A world of silence and covered by snow
Feelings of peace and serenity I can't let go

Then without much notice you came around
And my world is crumbling and breaking down
You know that I never asked you to melt my icy wall
But you did it anyway and I lost my security and all

Now you are residing right here in my heart
But you dont let me find you from the start
I know that you exist only in my dreams
But I will keep searching for you - it seems

You left me out in the cold and without protection
But you are not real yet - only a vague reflection
Understand that I could become anyone you want me to be
Because you are my savior and only you set me free

Only you broke through layers of debris and time
And I must say that the possibility of us is truly sublime
I long to see your smile and a spark in your eyes
I am so tired of pretense empty compromises and lies

I often think of you and if you could love me
Wishing for a crystal ball to finally find you - you see
You broke through to my heart and opened a wide door
So walk on through already and come to the fore

    scholarly in every detail of writing.
    conveys so much emotion.
    the first paragraph is especially beautful.
    the poem truly is a breakthrough
    but so are all your poems
