Moments like this I get excited when I smell my mothers cooking wafting away from

the kitchen into my nostrils it is a familiar smell that brings me back to my childhood

where my brother, sister and I would race downstairs like sprinters running for the

fastest time the gorgeous smell of oozing cheese melting on pasta with red sauce

that painted my mouth with one spoon fall I'd lick the edges like window wipers and

scoop and twist the ropes of pasta around my fork and the satisfied feeling creeps up

and inflates my belly like a overemphasized balloon…such simple memories like theses are forever locked in a safe shaped as my heart thinking of this make's my lips stretch to the size of banana happy feelings of warm tasty memories can only make me smile and ponder…

This poem is excellent. I see it as a beautiful description of how two people find each other and discover their passionate love for each other. Like David and Bathsheba. When he(the flint) and she(the steel) meet, they complemented each other completely. They are soul mates. They alone are meant for each other. It is love at first sight; and lo! the spark of passion ignites the flame of love within them, and reveals their most intimate secret desires and expectations: That he (the stone) has secretly cherished the metal, and she (the steel) has secretly cherished the stone... and they have found what they have always longed for. True love. Christopher Laue
In 1913, Bierce traveled to Mexico to gain first-hand experience of the Mexican Revolution. While traveling with rebel troops, he disappeared without a trace. Obviously, they didn't like his poetry either. Old does not neccesarily mean good. Many of the writers in this site could put this to shame, He has just taken a pair of rhyming couplets and put them together. Bad scansion, terrible assonance and utterly banaal. .
short and is very catchy! :)
