Helen. Nearly 27. Think too much.


It flutters And flickers But it's strong Feels warm Flares up When fuelled Ignites me With it's intensity. I deteriorate It overpowers me Melting Insides roaring Legs unsteady Overcome By these lovely flames.

I'm very sorry for the delay in reply, I never realised I had comments ! :( Thanks so much for you kind words on 'Once' (The poem about the elderly people) I'm one of those people who, when given a subject or title, can form words to fit around it. Also, I work with physically and mentally disabled people, sometimes I can see poetry in their eyes, and it just flows out, they have to put up with me scribling on pieces of paper sometimes!!! I love your poem, Saturday Night Takeaway, it reminds me of a concept I was trying to write about not so long ago, (forcing ideas never works with me unfortunatly but I still try!) Cleverly done, I shall be looking at your others :) Thanks again!
