Cynical and Frigid by Alyssa Anne Icaro

painting and poem by Alyssa Anne Icaro
painting by Alyssa Anne Icaro


We once dreamed of a fairy tale

Once thought that love is fair

At some point we proved it was

Until someone finally broke us


At first it was perfect

Thinking it was an answered prayer

But then things went wrong


And you don’t know how to go on

We may again find happiness

And become a bit careless

But sometimes we are still clueless


That our hearts are made of glasses

We tried and tried

And our hearts got dried

We loved and loved

And our wounds gone bad
