How can a bird that is born to fly, be put in a cage and expected to sing?


If I should ever have a heart to stop,

It would stop its counting beat for you

However the burning desire

To burn your lips with mine of fire

'Cause your icy touch sends a shrill

And sets my nerves alight still

 

The exhilarating rush when your adoring eyes lock mine

still makes my cheeks flame and cower in sublime

 

And if the world should perish not once but twice

Fire or ice

I would face my doom with you at my side and laugh

And I would whisper the final words 'I love you'

And not have to listen to hear you say them too.

@wizad , thank you for the comment , and I have heard that before ... I would just like to say though that there is only one line that is the same and that is 'Fire or Ice' and with that even being the title of this poem I find this analysis a little unfair.

Some say the world will end in fire
some say in ice
from what I have tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire
but if it had to perrish twice
I think i know enough of hate
that ice is also great
and would suffice
Fire and ice by robert Frost

a good poem but, there are a few lines that are similar to the poem fire or ice by robert frost.

“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than I

I agree with all of the other comments! It sounds like it could be one of the classics in the future. Thank you for leaving me breathless.

This is so amazing, you captured such complex feelings and sensations perfectly.

Hiya again @lyrahelix , thanks for your feed back , and looking through I completly understand the spelling mistakes and will edit as soon as possible. as for 'cower in sublime', It is meant to represent the butterfly sensation and the 'gooey' feeling of seeing your love , where as the cower part is there to subtly hint that the person feels beneath or below her/his love , thank you for asking and I am glad that I got the chance to explain , any other quieries please let me know xox

So as I said, the poem overall is good, but small things like "it's" instead of "its" as a possessive and "exhilerating" instead of "exhilarating" in spelling that are a bit distracting. Also, could you explain the line "and cower in sublime" to me? I don't really get it, but I have the feeling that it's important! Thanks :)
