I don’t remember us anymore.
We were an event I know was wonderful,
but I can’t quite grasp why.
You turned so cold, stayed so distant, always said no.
“I remember it like it was one minute ago.”
…and just like that the memories flood back and I sigh, knowing why it was you.
We were the sizzle on the griddle
the fireworks on the fourth of July
the last float in the parade
I was the truth
you were a charade.
Every second that the clock ticks
is a deep stabbing wound
a heartfelt memory that pricks
a pain that I’ve come to savor
…the delectable insanity of loving you.

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.
