Cold Hands, Cold Heart

Glacial – the place you called home
Glacial – the love you claimed you bore me
Glacial – the heart you said was devoted to me
Glacial – the smile you seldom turned on me
Glacial – the looks that you gave me
Glacial – your hands when you touched me
Glacial – the knife I used to slice through the cords that bound me
Glacial – your body now laid in the morgue

Word count 66

    Love the density of the repetition. And the last two lines are most definitely chilling!

  6. Wowzie. I bet THAT felt good to write. Writers don’t have to be murderers – we get it all out in our prose. 🙂

  7. Starting each line with the same word provides such impact. And how the atmosphere and tension builds towards that last line…great stuff! 🙂
