Hypothermia

The thin ice where we danced together,

Had been weakening for a while.

 

I watched your smile and mine,

Slowly turn to a frown.

 

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 deep water.

 

Nothing is ever solid as it seems,

We murdered the dream, that day.
