The Keeper Of Her Flames

The Keeper Of Her Flames

A Poem by Nipplegrinder

Within the chambers of heart
Pride, Desire, Fear, Love.
I am trusted to keep each flame.
I stoke each fire.
Flame of Pride is fiercely stoked.
With jabs and turning coals.
Flame of Desire is the easiest flame.
Soft, gentle breaths, and wind of bird's wing
stoke the smouldering.
Flame of Fear is carefully stoked.
I allow only the edges, burn.
Flame of Love is consistently stoked.
Each coal, the same attention.

I stoke each flame.
I am rewarded with the heat.
Her burning heart is my treasure.
I am
The Keeper
Her Flames

Clunky sounds about right. There's some things I don't like about it. I appreciate it, mang.

I like the idea but the writing reads clunky to me.

Too many "I"'s. Or something.
