Funeral pyre
Stick by rigid stick
A wall built around my heart

True love’s red, hot heat
Passionate, tempestuous
Ignited a blaze

A bonfire lit
Funeral pyre piled high
With old hurts and pain

Raising from the ash
A new heart tempered by flame

  2. I like that it came out indestructable! That’s a great word.


  3. Tara – this sang to me. I saw those sticks and the fire, and a tiny sorry heart within it all. X

    I love the image of building the fence stick by stick and how fast it burns down. The image of the phoenix at the end is perfect.

    I like the connection between “impenetrable” and “indestructible.” Strong piece. Thanks for sharing. =)

    I like this, Tara. There are a lot of hearts with fences around them. The good news is that those walls can be torn down.


So, tell me what you really think:
