Slowly Melting Away - Poem by Barbara Haskell
You want me to trust-
trust that you'll be there for me,
that we could have a life together, a home
and I'll be safe and sound.
How can I trust you?
You play games in your own head,
making up scenario's and reading all the lines.
Your sharp, hateful words dive bomb straight into my heart,
cutting me, tearing me to pieces.
like an ice pick, stabbing, breaking my heart into tiny shards of ice,
till I feel like the Cold Ice Queen.
Keep chipping away,
till my love and trust become tiny slivers one day,
slowly melting away.
