“Touched By Fire”

You sleep so soundly
you sleep so deep,
touched by fire,
you do not scream or weep.

Instead you fly into a state.

In silence you breathe,
in silence you brood.
Touched by fire,
you reach heights hard to elude.

You never want to travel there,
without  a proper invitation.

You walk among the clouds
you walk among the stars,
Touched by fire,
you see a face covered with scars.

Lines of age from worry
you might really try to fly.

Timothy Michael DiVito c1993
“Touched by fire in the soul”

I have been writing poetry for 44 years. I began writing poetry when I was 15 years old and to this date I have written over 16,000 poems. I have had poems published in The San Fernando Journal, The Rag Mag, WYRD, The Cultural Reverence(e-magazine) and in Kiiroo(e-magazine), Mobius and the World Peace Anthology. I have over 1000 poems published in all. I also have a poetry page on Wix.com entitled anemotionaljourney.com. I also have written a Science Fiction/Fantasy novel entitled "The Blue Sphere" and I am currently working on three other books at the present time. The first is entitled "The Angel and the Witches, the second is "Once Upon A Halloween" and the third is "The Devil's Playground".
