Shimmering in satin, Firelight flickering, Flames scaling the material One distracted moment at a time, She reclines in repose. Engulfing every fibre in a heat, A reckless abandonment Of the usual laws of nature That is matched only By the breath of she beneath, The licking amber tastes of her. Unconcerned, she blinks an eye, Scoops away stray locks; She wears it so well. Yet, it is such […]
El Diablo seeks our souls, His taloned hands pounding on Hell’s walls. We stand our ground, Listening. Hoofed feet aflame step out of the darkness Burning with the hurt of the haunted. We stand our ground, Preparing. Sequestered from mankind, the darkness his domain, He takes a moment to appraise his prey. We stand our ground, Appraising […]
Satan’s eyes regard As fires and infernos rage His wish: to burn all!
Dark the tree Towering in pitch Resplendent in night As the world burns As the world yearns For the darkness He has secured Not even a reflection In his ebony hide Not even a memory of light He resides as a template Of what once was (Image courtesy MichelleMarie)
The city burns beneath a molten sky. Cars flee without purpose or direction Seemingly bemused by the vermillion and gold. Steel thrusts up into the heat expecting to melt, Destined for a higher authority to remould it. Titanium swirls sit higher still waiting, always waiting To coat and cover, cover and coat. I watch from my little metal box and wonder: Do I […]
Do you see it? Cirrus Phoenix rises Looming over sleepy trees Cresting an urban sunset Burning ozone in flight
World of fire, World of flame, Burn for me In Satan’s name. Loose yourself, Consume in bliss, Help me to Escape Abyss. Cinders all Is what I seek, Revenge upon The blue, so weak. It is my dream, My one desire, That Earth should burn In Devil’s fire!
Phoenix rises, A majestic awakening, Coalescing in fire To burn a new dawn: Evaporating cloud; Scorching heaven; Sterilising the sky, So those who rise early Witness a miracle: I am one such person. Molten morning Will pass, But the memory Is forever burned Upon grey eyes. Now I am one with the fire, One with the sky A Phoenix risen. (Stunning image courtesy Michelle Marie)
At the end of the world Burns a tree made of coal Adorned with rubies A Phoenix made whole It springs from the spark Of that first burning pyre Fanned by the maelstrom A rampaging fire It waits for a knight Who is braver than brave To pluck off the jewels With aid of his knave Until then the embers Of all, was, and is Will illuminate […]
Something’s burning, Could be me? Steamin’ in Brunette’s vicinity. Just one flash From firebrand eyes, And flames attack Molten insides. Flambéed in stages, Singed and burned, You’ll make sure That passion’s earned. So, dare I sample For want of fire? Well, wait and see If it’s just desire?
