The Ice Princess – By Misty Layne

The Ice Princess

She ate the forbidden fruit
from the forbidden tree
and suddenly
she no longer knew
who she was.
The days went by
and she grew cold
a girl made of ice.
She forgot how to feel
how to be
and nothing made sense.
It was all just a
myriad of clusters
tied together
statues in her way.
She wanted to weep
for her lost past
but only icicles formed
at the tips of her eyes
so instead
she opened her mouth
cheeks cracking
and laughed.
