Feet dangling in icy water in shadowy darkness,
I let the coldness climb on me,
From feet to head,
Hoping to freeze something that’s dead.
Recalling what you’ve said,
“I don’t care.”
Oh, you’ve got me mad,
Because caring too much is what I always dare.
No more sweet talk,
Withholding the mismatch,
and the notoriously expired faith,
Life is blank and what an interesting place.
Love is the most powerful paradox,
I need no belittling pathos,
As the moon’s transfigured light rises,
I’m happy to be single without human sacrifice.
