A Frozen Heart

There is a heart sunken in ice-cold sea

That cannot see you or me

It is trapped inside a crystal

Like something unusual and brittle

It chooses to live this way

Without the fear to lose or anything to say

It’s easy to call it a frozen heart

I wonder if you knew what it was at the start.

Just waiting for the summer heat

When it will once again feel the beat

Melting down the sheets of ice

Would find love even if failed twice.

Revitalizes itself anew

Till it finds something true

Life had seemed to fall apart

When it was once a frozen heart.
