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.

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

so is is like a fan poem?

I adore this. It reminds me of a poem I wrote 7 months ago. The use of the elements such as fire and ice were in mine also. They say a great deal about love and heart break. :) This is great!
