Petrified Heart

I watched the cucumber
resting on top of the ice,
floating on top of the water,
filling the tall glass
sitting on the table
in front of me.

I watched the ice melt,
and the vegetable slice fall
to the bottom of the glass.

I thought of you,
and the love for each other
that once existed.

I pushed the glass
to the tiles below.
