She is
Fire burning
Passionate yearning
Heads turning
Respect earning
Blood chruning
Desire learning

She is
Ice cold
Spirit bold
Story told
Soul old
Broken mold
Heart gold

She is
Fire/ice
Desire/spice

Well, that seems to be the popular mixture of a person.   Nice poem.

 Nothing can deter a poet, for he is actuated by pure love. Who can predict his comings and goings? "Thoreau"

This will go down as one of my favorites.  You really know how to get to me.  I love this one!

La Tristesse Durera (Scream to a Sigh)
"Life has been unfaithful And it all promised so so much
I am a relic I am just a petrified cry Wheeled out once a year, a cenotaph souvenir
The applause nails down my silence
La tristesse durera
Scream to a sigh, to a sigh
I see liberals I am just a fashion accessory
People send postcards
And they all hope I'm feeling well I retreat into self-pity, it's so easy Where they patronise my misery
La tristesse durera
Scream to a sigh, to a sigh
I sold my medal
It paid a bill
It sells at market stalls Parades Milan catwalks
The sadness will never go Will never go away
Baby it's here to stay
