The Burn

My bed is winter
nothing burns
like the cold

This poem is for her
the paper burns
words fly free

smell of heartbreak
fills the air

Tonight I burn
I shake

out of the moonlight

into the shadows
I burn to the ground

tear me into little pieces

cut me into
little parts
just love me

I would rather
be blind
deaf
mute

than to have a heart
that could not love her

I love her
because of
who I am

when I am with her...

    Hi Ken, always the romantic. Your words always flow in there own inimitable way. We are taken along on the flow and the pictures you want us to see form in our minds. Sometimes pictures of sadness, sometimes pictures of joy but we always see them. That is an art in itself my romantic friend. Sorry it has been a while . Catch you later, Your friend, MIKE
