Hypothermia

The thin ice where we danced together

had been weakening for a while.

 

I watched your smile and mine

slowly turn to frowns.

 

The cracks appeared swiftly

once they began to show.

 

We had shared the same dream, but

we were competing for the same ray of sun.

 

So the icy water gripped our bones

and together we drowned.

 

We pulled each other under

struggling for air in the deep water.

 

Nothing is ever solid as it seems

we murdered the dream that day.
