Cold Case

Our history is a cold case
Dissected on a table
Dusty memories now covered
No-one has looked within
For years

Our passion is on cold ice
Freezing like its birth-right
Trapped within a photo
A memory mostly forgotten
In tears

Our mystery is a cold case
Rendered lost and irrelevant, yet
detectives may still ponder,
looking for imperfections
in the crime

Our hopes are now on cold ice
They breathed too brief and small
Left-overs from a dinner
where no guests came to call
in time
