Chilled Love

From cold, distant hearts frigid
air does circulate
Downy blanket no longer the
surface can insulate
Icy stares a corrosive wind
does instigate
A sheltering family no longer
the gale can mitigate
Frostbitten minds numbed to
their pending fate
Emotive cisterns once gushing
with joy now frozen, stagnate
Frosty touches cause tender
limbs to degenerate
Thick, dreary clouds hover;
fleeting hopes oscillate
A rolling fog descends;
foundational dreams obfuscate
Fallowed ground fertilized by
acrimonious debate,
Allowing only seeds of malice
to germinate
Lacking a steady compass the
barren expanse to navigate,
Two, intemperate souls from
winter’s chill hibernate
A stale frond whose limp veins
are now desiccate

Todays poetry contest submission was written by Virtuoso.
