Burn, Burning, Burned

Burn, Burning, Burned

A Poem by The Rock And Roll Cowboy(REBEL WITH A CAUSE)

 

The candlelight accents the room just enough

to make everything in it look beautiful.

 

The crackling sounds coming from the fireplace

has the task of keeping loneliness company.

 

The walls are engulfed in flames with the intent

of keeping the heart in its home sweet home.

I love the setting and picture I get from this. It's so warm and relaxing, yet has a burning edge to it in the last stanza. Perfect contradiction!!

Thank you so much :)
In some ways this reads like the perfect setting .. but that second stanza holds such a familiar sadness for many people. Lovely write, Dale.

Thank you so much.
'of keeping the heart in its home sweet home'..that sweet feeling of being home..well expressed.

This speaks volumes in a few short lines. There is magic in fire and it can sooth us when we feel alone or create romance when we are not. A delightful read even with the sad undertone.

You actually made fire seem beautiful.

there is much more to this than first appears..the title is a give away..and as the you work through each stanza its more apparent of loneliness and then engulfed in flames..arguments, fear..its very subtle but that is its strength..superb written
