I wrote 'Crackling Fire' one and a half years ago. Hope you enjoy. Constructive criticism is welcome. :)
Crackling fire, she cries and consumes
All the terror of this mind's monsoons
Ease to deride, her richness bears right
Wrapped with the warmth of sensual delight
To cleave to her whose dye impedes not
Poisoning beauty: a heart forgot
Is to worship both this ruptured life
And to knowingly kneel beneath its knife
An unfinished rhyme I race on seaward
To stop her course; yet, my soul still leeward
Thrashes to thrive, its affections alighted:
Passion painted, love unrequited.

I'm a little new to publishing stories/ poetry here, so am quite unsure how to leave proper spaces in between my stanzas… Every four lines is supposed to be the start of a new stanza.
