_____ DISSOLUTION _____
Silently they lie like icebergs
_____ in a black and frozen sea.
Moving endlessly to nowhere
_____ on waves of turmoil
__________ they occasionally touch ––
Only to crash together in rumbling torment
_____ a parody of intimacy ––
__________ to split, shatter and destroy.
And when on rare, divine days
_____ a ray of warmth
__________ penetrates the chill damp
They melt –– grateful –– yielding –– unafraid
Only to slip back into the prison
_____ of the black and frozen sea ––
Formless –– and without identity.
~ Nulland Voyde (1933-1974)
