Such furry brews within your words. The character you have created though she is determined to warn of her wrath, reading, I couldn't help but wonder if she might want to be rescued. When she speaks of her own pain it brought me to that conclusion.
I thought the rhythm of your stanzas was excellent. You wove rhyme so well into your story. The artwork and music were perfect representations of your poem.

    Thank you, Katherine. I understand your perception that she's actually trying to be saved (probably from herself).

I have to say, Diane, you are brilliant at putting your emotions down in a poem. It's excellent. Death, when we are unprepared, (who is?) hits us harder than if we have been expecting it for a long time. Saying that, I don't think you are even then when you love someone wholeheartedly. Keep them coming, my friend, excellent medication. Big hugs and much love. Sandra. xx

Hi Arte,

Heck girl with a first stanza like that if I was a bloke, I would be intrigued not afraid! Just saying...

Okay I'm getting you by the third stanza lol "make you less than whole" Well that might scare me a little if I was a bloke!

It's a little Shakespearean to me, kinda tragic and all bad ass but underneath it all my dear friend, you need a yang to your ying. I don't mean particularly in a sexual or partner kinda of way, but someone who gets you and doesn't go freaky when you have these stages ...

love you sister xoxo deborah

    LOL. Thank you for the 6, Deb. These pieces have been draining to me. I hope to be walking quietly again. I truly have no place in my life for drama.

Well, she sure doesn't leave any room for doubt now! I enjoyed your poem, especially this part:

At first my warmth shall beckon you
a haven from your cold
but do not touch
I'll sear your page
with flames
I can't control


I found nothing to correct.
Well done.
Jan

Hi, Artemis

= Interesting, how at different times in our life, depending on circumstances, we can be just as you described in this awesome poem.
= I believe, perhaps, a woman can feel it more, since our emotions are mixed with adversity and hormones.
= Damn, those hormones sometimes when they act up at the wrong time.
= Excellent write and artwork.

Cheers, J
Have a good day/evening!

Hello

What a perfectly written piece. Great rhythm throughout. I can relate to this because I can see myself in your words and probably, from past experience, understand where you are coming from.

All the best

Quite a grim and foreboding siren this gal is, unraveling all her darkness
and doom life and world in bone chilling rapport. At least momentarily
humane enough to give fair warning if such seduction and temptation
is what you seek or must have.
Totally molten picture capture, with sizzling, crackling verse to match.
Graphic and compelling read!
Thanks for sharing...
Ronni

Are you really that combustible? Not the type of writing I am used to reading from you. Has something set you ablaze? A failed romance or just anger on fire? Real love will quench the flames my friend. Blessings, K.

    I losy my love of twenty years, Kate in December. I thought I had gone through all of the phases but it seems there is anger to be dealt with as well as the sorrow.
reply by Aussie on 12-Nov-2017
    Sweet girl, everyone grieves in a different way. I had no support when my soulmate passed. I thought I was OK after 18 months - I had a nervous breakdown and it really shook me up. Sweetheart, you are angry because you have been left alone and there is nothing you can do except 'seek peace and ;pursue it.' It took me seven years to be a whole person again. I'm here if you wish to talk. Love, Kace. XXX

In my opinion, another superb write from this uniquely gifted and prolific poet - rhyme and rhythm even and fluid in both construction and sound - the words dynamic and articulately rendered - an absolutely breathtaking piece...
