Words on Fire
When my muse comes around to inspire
My words dance with fire
Building castles everywhere
Out of dreams and thin air
Blending new romance with raw desire.
With each tale that demands to be told
Real stories become bold
Allowing characters to act
Mixing fantasy with fact
Grabbing audiences with claws that hold.
Because these words coax and seduce
Strong feelings they produce
Stirring embers deep inside
Where feelings cannot hide
Boiling hearts with their own juice.
My words are powerful on a page
Or when spoken on life’s stage
Gathering no moss as they flow
Becoming stronger as they go
Carrying the discovered wisdom of an age.
My words are restless and never tire
As they pull others from the mire
But they carry a deadly sting
If venom is permitted its full swing
Therefore cautiously I write with fire.
