Thin Ice, by C. Platt .

I'm walking on thin ice.
A safe place?
Nothing is safe here.
If I fall, I fall... and surely perish.
I must get to the other side,
but I still won't be safe.
I will never be safe from thin ice.
I am betrayed by the warmth I knew,
the warmth that came from you.
Thin ice followed me everywhere.
Trying to escape it, trying to forget.
Relentless was the thin ice.
Yearning for the warmth,
I forget that I'm on thin ice.
I hear a crack,
I run for land.
I wake up,
still alike.
I'm warm.
Your face above me.
Your hand on mine.
Finally I'm safe,
no more thin ice.
