you fireproof your heart
   ice running through you
      emotions frozen in time
         suspended in icicles of
            reverberating waterfalls
               gushing down the rapids
                  crushing breakers galore
                     in search of ebb and flow
                        returning once out of time
                           forever lost in tiny droplets
                              continually chasing shapes
                                 incessantly trading futures
                                    in searches of watered-silk
                                       snowflakes drowned in sleet
                                          while perpetually captured
                                             in raging blizzards of loss
