burning within my soul

Fire is the burning within my soul
Half alive am no longer whole

Heat is placed there by providence
But I am living without self confidence

But the fire is lit for all to see
Look at my face to see the real me

When I bare my soul to all
The furnish shudders with the call

Look deeply into my eyes
But beware do not surmise

That all is fine within this place
Cos’ the ice maiden has shown her face

So fire and ice do not mix
One begats the other, know their tricks

But kept apart they live in harmony
Until another lost love kindles the agony

Contest :  Fire and Ice   Penned by Seren Roberts

    This form I am definitley a little more familiar with. I love the imagery the introspection, the contradiction or I guess I would say coincidence of the fire and the ice. I guess I should say a belated congratulations as well. This poem was actually written before I joined this site, I think lol. Another wonderful poem. Most of my comments are psychology mixed with philosophy, sorry about that lol.

    A very intriguing write, Seren-- I like how you touched on fire and ice here-- I wonder sometimes if there is one way to fuse the two together? I especially liked the last couplet....

    Me wonders if intriguing is another way of saying , its crap. Haha. Glad u you liked the last couplet. How could we fuse the 2, hmm 1 would have to be contained, so i doubt if its possible, but someone out there will have an answer......Seren
