Still

It has been too long
Things are now so far away
Distant, just as memories past
The fire no longer holds sway
Do I no longer long
Has passion died at last

I was forged in ice and fire
Both pulled with equal strength
I was always between two spheres
keeping both at an equal length
Avoiding consequenses dire
If not happy, without tears

No I long, I long, still
Fire and ice have combined
With the memories I clutch
tattered, creased, and lined
Fire and ice have filled my will
And so I love and dispair so much

If I could write like this.. I would be a very, very happy lady indeed! Tis always a pleasure to read your thoughts as you have them displayed in such a glorious and beautiful way.. Thank you for sharing.. Hugs.. SilverGirl

Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
