Random Poem:

A Lover's Quarrel

Ignite the fire
We both burn out
Tears are shed
But there's a drought
Hiding out
We're in the open
One heart mends
The other's broken
Turn the page
Back to the start
The angel shoots
Gets hit by the dart
In the heart
The love explodes
Pounding out
Now bestowed
Upon us both
Still in denial
Of the passion we shared
We're still hostile
Let's put an end
To this quarrel, this duel
Ignite the fire
I have the fuel
