About the poem
When reading the poem Emerald, one cannot help thinking that this poem is actually an excuse. An excuse from someone, who feels that he (or she, but the poem is written by a male) is somewhat in doubt if he can provide the love he is supposed to give.
A burn out is a process very complex. It leads to many things and those who suffer from this, feel that they are letting everyone down. This is not the case, but in their minds, it is a “fact.”
There is no limit as it comes to a certain age, when someone can feel the pains caused by a burn out.
This is what the poet has to say about this poem:
“This poem is about how at a young age desire felt limitless but over time and age it started to burn out. Then upon meeting someone special it grew and about how it should be kept under control or else it burns too fast eventually leading to the fire burning out.”
My heart burned with emerald hued fire
It felt as if I had limitless desire
Now, gone cold a lump of glowing ember
A cold draft in the month of December
Afraid to swallow or it will burn out
Heart afflicted with equivalence of gout
The arthritic squeezing, unable to breath
Until I see you and the fire starts to seethe
Taming the flames as they grow
Must not let them go out of control
For it’s been so long you see
Since, I’ve felt love from anyone but me
It isn’t something I give unwillingly
This love I hold is free
I don’t walk into this unwittingly
I can walk away and let things be
So, let’s choose what we do carefully
or one of us will end up regretfully
