Song of Ice and Fire

By: Lauren McGrath

Stare into these eyes of flame

Warm embrace of blazing love

Wild animal you cannot tame

Feral beauty of gentle dove


Gaze into these eyes of fire

Scorching heat of kindled lust

Burning secret of past desire

Scattered ashes of annihilated trust


Look into these eyes of ice

Cold shards of glinting hate

Freezing hand of ghostly sacrifice

Chilled hunger will not sate


Glance into these eyes of frost

Chilling agony of defeat

Icy despair of the eternally lost

Frozen heart of shattering deceit


Look into what these hearts require

Feel the temperature of their desire
