Fire and Ice

by Joanna

Congruency of flow
Begins new aspects of life
The pursuit of joy
For instance
Can bring about
Vast avenues of sorrow
Splintering pain
(You and all of the mirrors)
Until finally
Some shred of laughter
Tinges the mouth
Watering from a burst
The shock hits
The struggle ceases
Eruptions occur until collapse
(and exhale)
