"Fire and Ice Love Duel"
fierce fire of love smoldered, melting chilled veins
frozen in tears from passion's masquerade game
a grieving heart shattered as glass windowpanes
ressurected by lovelight's intimate flame.
fire sparks lovers to trust words so gentle
as ice quells desires strong and sentimental.
elements contrast and hide deep affection
creates 'paradise' or blatant rejection.
while embers glow softly, emotions renewed
scars from dark past wither into furnace heat
remnants of romance lost in feelings askewed
as tenderness begs to deny false repeat.
fire illuminates a wanton seared soul
for fire evokes magic moments to whole.
veniers of ice vanish in vapory mist
swallowed by love duel's eternal exist.
