She watched the flames as they flickered up the coals,
and felt the warmth emanate from them.

Not a real fire, of course,
but one that was commanded by electricity,
effective none the less.

Leaning back in the chair, she thought,

This poem illustrates the incredible range of your poetic style Ernestine. Different from many of yours, this free verse poem is a salutory read (particularly on this site, I suspect) about those that charm with their wily words and their handsome faces. 'Like his stories, all bogus, burning the heart, slowly.' stood out for me. Great poem. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

I enjoyed reading this Ernestine, sometimes we put our trust in people and realise we have made a mistake, the point of this write being things or people are not always what they seem, well-penned as always, Love Lynda xx
