Our Saturday Stream of Consciousness prompt from Linda was:

“Element.” Choose one of the four: air/water/earth/fire or use the word “element” however you wish to define it. Enjoy!

I chose to work with the element of fire, as I have been on a poetry streak lately.


rose hoar frost

Flames lick the burning passions of my distrust,

as I gaze at the deep nothingness in your eyes.

Your cold icy stare smolders in the empty recesses of my soul.

I see your hatred, ablaze with desire, a cheap tawdry trick

aimed to once again draw me into the realm of  your darkness.

I feel your cloying breath upon my face –

kisses dripping with an icy resolve

luring me, taunting me, haunting me.

My skepticism lingers, as cold fingers of doubt grip and choke –

clutching at my trembling, rapidly beating heart.

Your cruel game is passionate and intense,

filled with the indifference of a first lover.

My own suspicions were astutely intact,

for my disbelief rang true.

The fires that fueled the intensity of you –

now crumble like white hoar-frost in the winds

of an unwelcoming fate.

  1. Sometimes I hate having to think up adjectives to describe someone’s poetry because nothing can measure up to the poem itself…this is one of those times. None that come to mind are quite worthy. This is one of the best poems I’ve read in a while 🙂
