coals of life

coals of life

A Poem by marie



look into my eyes

see the writhing anger

see the passion in disguise

see the growing danger


words flicking across the tongue

they can warm they can harm

not to close, they're still young

quickly now, you disarm


twirl around in lovely dances

scream and shout in twisted pain

they call it all happenstances

draw near, run again


this thin line, none mistake

between hells ground and heavens gate

start now a step to take

there's no escaping your true fate


i come, i go

controlled yet wild

thrashing to and fro

yearning as an innocent child


they all wonder, they all stare

pushing back pulling forth

answering unwanted call

giving out for all i'm worth


taking one, burn away

steal another, never stay

staying here i can play

calling out, the wood does fray


raging plains

welcome hearth

strength still wanes

loves new hearts


love and anger

ice and fire

safe and danger

opposite desire


blackened ground

impossible air

lost without sound

isn't life so fair


raindrops come and raindrops go

vainly trying, don't let me grow

their time is short, my time is long

listen to my crackle just like a song

Excellent, I was waiting for your next upload. I believe your poetry is getting better and better with each write. Your are more capable of packing just the right emotions into just the right words to make your poems mean exactly what you want them to, and that is a skill I envy.

Awesome I still love the first stanza just because it sounds great. I love the...what's the word- personification. The comparison of a flame to a feeling. =3
