Fire or Ice

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.

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

I love the last para; the spelling/grammar is a bit distracting though

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!
