Confession of Fire




Twenty fires in my core, incendiary ooze death of the poor.

Life that’s saved, Christ implored, tho lava leaks onto my floor.


Amadeo! Cherub of Venetian tombs,

beseech thee humbly, lick this wound.

Tainted earth flows o’r my pores,

distasteful found by foulest spores.

Eternal life, a grace retired,

blood sanguine instead of dire.


Red bat, erupts into my bath,

belching lava, screeching wrath.

Away! Away, commands this prose,

thou alike the phoenix stanza grows.


Ah! If only stigmata would grace my hand,

abate this torture, my saints bedpan.

    Since God is omnipresent, and Jesus is God, Jesus is in everything. More importantly everything we use impacts every other thing, because its really all the same thing. Energy, love, power, God.

Stunning and superb write here!!! Wow, I must say this one blows me away. I know I may have said that about another one of your poems, but I must say, I have not read anyone here yet, who writes such as you do with your particular amazing style and talent!

Whew! Really good one here.

Voted way up ++++ and sharing (sorry, my sharing butttons are not appearing now, but I will return to share) Promise :)

God bless, Faith Reaper

Thank you again Faith Reaper, your words are encouraging. I write from experience, all but a very few of my poems are based solely on events in my life, it is good to know that I am able to relate these things in a way that can be appreciated.
