Fingers caress the still, silky pond
Cold waters chill as senses respond
 
Soft ripples flow and synchronise
Thoughts in mind that crystallise
 
Heavy heart, through cold submerge
As mind and body demand upsurge
 
Immersed beneath the bitter mass
Where ripples die, replaced by glass
 
Lungs beating hard in rhythm with pulse
Minds inner battle against natural impulse
 
The seconds pass like darkened years
No time for sadness, no time for tears
 
At last this beating heart subsides
A peace unknown, that death provides.
