You only see the shell,
Or what I want you to see.
Inside I'm a fondue of sentiment:
Igneous, aqueous, osseous.
Fractures and fissures blush scarlet
It’s then that you really see Me.

I agree with Tara, there's nothing like a fondue of sentiment! :) What a great line! Thanks for creating such good work.ReplyDelete
Hi Tara and Tom! Thank you both so much for your kind words - I love short, succinct statements that are so loud in such few words.ReplyDelete

Hi Dawn and Jannatwrites!ReplyDelete
So evidently the fondue is popular - is it cheesy? Ha (oh man, so sorry... it's late. lol)
Dawn, I think you pegged how I write in your comment - I love using inner emotion in correlation to blunt, physical-sounding words.
Thank you both for your comments. :)
