Desiring Iapetus

I crawled into the depths of your heart
titanic and cold
all packed ice
all packed with screaming faces
packed with pain
all glacial,
all razor crystalline.

I thought I could warm you
I thought I could see heat
just waiting to be released
a heart in need
of tenderness
of touch
of love

You crushed me in those cold caverns
You sealed me in a tomb of ice
added me to the faces
locked away, screaming
forever desiring
forever desiring Iapetus.

Terrible relationships make terrible people. I write poetry to break the cycle.
