OPAL, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: You are ice and fire
Last Line: Gleaming with agitated torches.
Subject(s): Love

You are ice and fire,
The touch of you burns my hands like snow.
You are cold and flame.
You are the crimson of amaryllis,
The silver of moon-touched magnolias.
When I am with you,
My heart is a frozen pond
Gleaming with agitated torches.
