The Unveiled Soul ~  Crimsin and Skydancer duet

We're setting fires in souls, that's what we poets do  
Arsonists with flammable words, burning bridges, igniting worlds.  
From our catastrophic pen  
we bring forth universes of all our love and pain  
We're never quite the same.  
 
the heart of a poet is in their artistry  
we burn with the need to touch each other  
interlaced words infused with emotion  
we fall hard for one another  
 
a subtle verse caressing us in the aether  
we feel each other so intimately  
I've hurt hearts and been broken by words  
 
tongue of fire licking your darkness  
enflaming you...yes I know...I feel you too  
that's what we do to each other  
 
my tongue sometimes a switchblade  
a warrior I come out slicing and dicing  
with an intensity that scares even me  
we feel things so fiercely here in the underground  
 
pagans ritualistic in rites to the dead gods of poetry  
anything for a killer line  
we ache to connect with you deeply  
 
come one and all you are cordially invited to spill your guts  
a den for the semi-neurotic sometimes psychotic  
we welcome both your light and your dark art  
we promise not to burn you at the stake for it  
though we can't promise not to break your hearts lovely one  
 
this is the nature of the unveiling of one's soul  
it was made for the burning, yearning turmoil of it all

Author's Note
A poem we worked on a while back and I'd forgotten about it. Luckily my soul sister Crim didn't!
