heaven and hell

Some say the world will end in fire,
some say ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.

But if it had to perish twice, 
I think I know enough of hate
to say that for destruction ice 
is also great
and would suffice.

-Robert Frost

you are
every heaven
i pray to
and every
hell
in which i burn
you are all the
good things
that lie within
me
you are my smile
and the soft exhale
at the end of
the day
but you are also the fire
that rages
just underneath
my skin
burning away
the chills
and melting
every pure
thought
