North Atlantic Krakatoa

North Atlantic Krakatoa, By Brian37 (AKA Brian James Rational Poet on FB/META and @brianrrs37 on Twitter)

#molten rock
The hot cold
Of isolation
Burning nothing
Blistering everything
On an island
Surrounded by
Icebergs cutting
Into your side
Salty hypothermia
Bleeding lifeboats
That are not there
Molten dry ice
Your tears
Nobody hears.

It’s been somewhat
40 years since
Pat belted out
Lines of cold shoulders
And fevers tonight
And not giving in
You want to give me
Your love
But Leonardo
The king of the world
Died, and it is love
To you,
That has lied.

Of course the title is metaphor for the hot and cold extremes, and our emotions while in love. There are the obvious references to the Titanic here of course. “Pat” is referring to “Pat Benatar” and her song “Fire And Ice”.

Krakatoa is in Indonesia. And of course the Titanic sank in the North Atlantic.
