I froze my heart –

I froze my heart
so she wouldn’t melt away
bit by bit, dissipate tear by tear

I froze my heart
to keep her safe, uncut
instead she became fixed and hard

and so –
she wouldn’t budge
soften or give, becoming impermeable

a monarch – fierce
protectress of vulnerability –
but through all this time, centuries on

ruling so well
feeling no pain, she forgot
it was her heart which made her a queen
