About the Poem
I wrote this poem while in the first stages of a relationship, where his very words made me fuzzy and warm inside. The colors are used to express emptiness turned to warm joy. They represent a transformation, put into action by this Knight of Warmth.
A Knight In Fire's Armor
Entering the castle,
ice crystals safe from dawn,
I am drawn to the cold,
perhaps fire beyond.
Numb, my fingers cry,
in search of comforting heat,
Past silver statues,
amethyst angels, crystal wings,
I follow the ghastly Queen.
At her throne, I bow,
head low and tired,
sinking into blackness,
then suddenly--the fire!
Your warmth is my knight,
flames on ice ablaze,
On to the valley, bright with kings,
Past the copper statues,
ruby angels, golden wings.
