Fire and Ice Collaboration

Fire and Ice

Both of them burn

The cold and the heat

Each enjoying a turn

Fire and Ice

Instigators of change

They devour the weak

In the wars that they wage

Fire and Ice

Stealing all of my dreams

Neither are never

Quite what they seem

Fire and Ice

The gypsy in free

Delusions of grandeur

The alter ego of me


Burning in my veins

Changing my vision

Nothing will be the same

Fire and ice

Churning in my eyes

Freedom has come

From icy flames


Verse of day

Rhyme of night

One casts dawn

On another’s twilight

Fire and Ice

Black and White

A tale inspired

In union to write


Burning and cold

fighting inside.

Flames rising up

consuming the hate

ice cooling down

which one is bait?

Hot and cold

emotions so bold,

fire and ice

which one will hold?


Cold as winter

but hot as hell

Balanced by a scale

through my mind

Cross me…

You’re surely get burned

And frost bitten

by my words

Taste the sensation

of what’s been fed to you

Can handle the two?


Fire and Ice

Can deaden a soul

Scorching my heart

Boring its hole


Fire and Ice

Not for tepid or weak

Buyer beware

if its love that you seek

Let me burn

 in the fire

Let me freeze

in the ice

Let me melt

in your flames

death by

Fire and Ice

Fire and Ice

Foreword . . .

Many moons ago I realized the power of words and how they can accurately describe the nuances of emotion. They can take a person to the highest highs, and just as easily, that person can plummet into nothingness…. just by words. It is fascinating how perception and illusion rule our lives. What others fail to see is that for some, once the words are out there… the bleeding stops a little bit more… Those words are just part of us…And that is the beauty of it.

Fire and Ice is a collection of connections based on perceptions. It is person after person, reading, relating, and then reaching out to others through words. Connection…  is really what it is all about that.

I am honored to invite you inside the minds of people just like you. All their hopes, dreams, and disasters are here within the pages of this book.
