The Ice Between

A rose.
It was what she needed to thaw her heart,
but it was frozen too,
discarded,
tossed away by someone else.
Bending,
she removed her glove,
and set her hand to the ice.
So close.
Could the rose feel her warmth?
Probably not.
All she could feel were the frozen drops
landing on the back of her hand.
