Two Tricube Poems About My Firey Personality

I decided to try out a new poetry form, the Tricube. A few hours later, I found myself staring at these two poems, wondering which one conveys my sentiments more clearly. I would love to hear what you think.

I try hard
to tone it
down for you,

But flare ups
and blow ups
just happen.

My soul won't
its heartfire.

On Fire
by Rachel Hoyt

I'm on fire
all the time,
burning bright.

You love to 
watch me burn
and add fuel,

Then you say,
"Keep the heat
to yourself."

  1. I think both poems are really well written. But of the two I REALLY love the first one, 'Heartfire'.
    The line 'My soul won't extinguish it's heartfire.' is a beautiful thought.

    1. Thank you, Jeffrey! Sorry it took so long for me to see this comment. I've been a slave to my "heartfire". :)

      I'm glad you enjoy that poem so much. I needed that encouragement today. :)
