Forged in the fires of forgetting, when I

Relax my guard, somehow knowing

I‘m safe to the depths with you, I

Erupt unexpectedly, hot words burn us both

Nothing I can do to protect us but space –

Damn! I retreat, and take my flames

So far away I’m scared I won’t know

How to come back when only ashes remain

In the end it’s a new me that returns

Palms up in peace, for you’re too precious



And today’s Haikrostic:


Found it in my soup

Lucky I saw it in time –

Yikes! I ate the roll
