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.
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.
