Melting Stone

Turned to stone
No emotions
Or feelings
Hard and cold
Even anger
Too much
To feel
Like a switch
Flipped off
Eyes blank
Staring through
Life

Warm water
Dripping on ice
Your kindness
Melting
Vacant doorways
To a broken soul
Petrified
To feel again
See the world
Leave
A numb
Sanctuary

Time marked
Persistent patience
Back and forth
Dance
Of resistance
Rigid paralysis
Of previous
Experience
Breakthrough
To mending soul
Feeling for
Existence
