In Fickle Flames

In fickle flames:

Should we bow to where and which
when we hear (the pitch) of know and how?

The same of fame creeps unto voice:
a smoky sounding have no choice.

Admit we choose
to disregard,
when starry pupils spark excuse
when lighted there and then bewitch
yet senses five aren't fully barred.

(With scars) how we must choose rejoice!

Perhaps that we and us forget
we'll part with dry and soon be wet.

Our eyes, our voice
our choices met:

We'll crackle and smolder,
We'll glimpse beyond shoulder, 
We'll exist both far away and colder

Our lives beset, 
and mostly over.

    Congratulations Michele, on your placement in the June 2009 Poetry Soup contest. Fickle, is a woman's prerogative, I've heard, but sometimes, it does leave an emotional chill. Excellent writing. Lovingly, Dane

    ><>~ Congratulations on your 4th place poem, Michele. Great work and well deserved. I tend to keep my regrets in a quite place in the back of my mind. From time to time I'll take them out and feel the pain and cry the tears once again. When I replace them I do so with gratitude for their legacy and renew my vow to make good of them. Not my reccomendation for everyone, it just works foe me. Your poem was a real thought provoker~<><

    I totally agree, I asked God if he removed regret from my memory, could I still keep the thoughts? He said they went hand in hand, so when his forgiveness washed over me, I had no need to remember. Your poetry rings so true.-AA

    Indeed, the spark we call life has a "fickle flame." And as you say in your last verse, by the time we realize what is important, our lives are "mostly over." Very sad, but excellently written. Love, Carolyn
