Boiling, red-hot anger
Vacate with a bang and a flash
Tears carbonize ventricle edges
Curbed, fire and ice create flowing water
Stiffened, white-frost anger
Abide as veins harden to ice
Tears glaciate ventricle edges
Curbed, fire and ice create calm synergy
(Written for The Community Storyboard Prompt: Fire and Ice)
Perhaps some of you are in a relationship of opposites.
One full of passion and fire, who feels too deeply and the singed scars cause the heart to fail over time.
The other reticent and restrained where all feeling flows in a subterranean underground and rarely bubbles to the surface. They feel, but ruthlessly regulate it. Thickened ice causes the heart to fail over time.
Couples like this can be wonderful, a beautiful balancing act. But this type of relationship requires constant re-zeroing of scales, or the balance turns into chaos. To those of you who are happily balanced, you are blessed. And would you share how you have survived it?
PS: Im so excited! The Community Storyboard accepted this poem! This is my first attempt at an Etheree!
Etheree: Consists of 10 lines of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 syllables. Etheree can also be reversed and written 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Get creative and write an Etheree with more than one verse, but follow suit with an inverted syllable count.
