the man of ice is hollow
his skin cold as the grave
his armor made of solid snow
his blade is forged of ice
his hair is frozen rain
streaming down his face
his eyes are flakes of winter snow
captured in their fall

he mustnít come too close to warmth
and thaw his icy shield
or be proven wrong
the man of ice is hollow
hollow, after all
This is about a certain silver/grey haired guy and could be considered fan poetry. But does that even exist...?
Anywaym it's got lots and lots of meaning, especially in the last... thingy... er... *hits self* Yes, paragraph. The last couple of lines are kind of subtle, I don't expect you to understand really ^^; But I won't explain here, just read the thing first, ok? Ok.

Vicious belongs to whoever made him and Cowboy Bebop

Thanks ^^ I don't know if you know the character this was inspired by, but I tried to make him sound sort of sad, rather than evil, I hope that worked out.
Erm, yea ^^; Thanks for the comment ^^

Wow. Vicious never really inspired me to do much of anything. Then again, my guy is only alive for about 5 minutes, so I suppose I have no excuse.

You did a very good job. ^^ I think I appreciate Vicious a bit more now.

I did? Oh yay ^^ That's great. People always describe him as just another cold murdering bastard, but he's not... He's got more layers, like every character in that anime ^^;

Very nice. And so I no longer feel alone in the world when I write poetry inspired by characters. I did one about Kurama a long time ago, but it never made it up, cuz it's not Dev worthy.

oh my XD yes it did work... though... you make it sound like Vicious is a bottom less pit without emotions... *sniffles*

Nononono, you missed the deeper meaning! Like I expected to happen ^^; He's only trying to make it look that way, but if he'd let the ice melt, it would become obvious it actually isn't. *nods*
