I don’t care what they say,
 I’m no saint myself.
 Just give me a signal
 Even if only a blink
 And I’ll fight off the furies;
 Tear down heaven;
 Kick down the gates of hell,
 For one moment beside you.
 Your eyes tell a tale
 The arch of your brows more so,
 But that spark is there
 And I wait for the fires
 To consume me.

  1. If you are no saint, how did you earn the reputation of being one? 😉 Another amazing poem. And since I haven’t used “love” with you today — I LOVE it!!

      1. Whatever works!! I’m not that lucky! Even if I were the only one in the room, the voting would be closed. 😉

      2. No wonder I can’t quite reach your height of excellence!! 😉 You certainly hold the advantage over me. I guess I will just continue to bask in the glow of your brilliance. 🙂

      3. Ahh — but your saintly and angelic wishes have come true. You just have grander aspirations than us earthly bound humans do. 😉

      4. You’ve always suspected I was human as celestial beings do not have the naughty thoughts I so often do. LOL

  2. Gorgeous…what an Image!!! Betcha SHE’s not cold 🙂
    So Thankful for the Inspiration of your Talent this year. Blessings for a Peaceful and Joyous New Year~
