Shree at http://about.me/shree.jacob is an artist and writer and I love the way she thinks. She’s extremely well read and always comments here with some keen insight. So it is a privilege for me to have her as a guest poet. Thanks Shree!
"Fire Ignited" by Shree Fire ignited, Burning her innocence; Flames licking, Showing no mercy; Her beauty and her purity It engulfs Every day as the night falls; And darkness reigns, Her young body ravaged; Tears fall, Heart torn and ripped, A soul writhing in pain... She closes her eyes, And through the blazing flames Of hate and agony and fear unspoken, She opens her inner eye; Her child's eye; And she gazes into the distance Of all things light and warm and comforing; Things she had known but long forgotten. As her Angel now charred and small Keeps her weeping vigil.
