In Fire Redeemed

By: Gus Victoria

Her hair a red tongue of flame
Passion fueled fire
She temps with a look
And damns with a kiss,
Her eyes sparkle
Deep as Oceanus
With mysteries akin,
Swallowed in those errant diamonds
The shade of a twice-lost hero;
Shunned from Earth
Banished from Heaven,
To find in her
More than ever was given, taken or shared,
In her embrace he burned,
And in the flames was renewed,
No angel she
No demon he,
They were,
They wished to be,
They learned to love,
They lived free,
Chaos seeking order
Night its day
Love its equal
Found in shattered hearts aflame.
