Hello. I'm Roarin' Fire and this is my poetry site.
Some people might consider my poems to be of an "alternative" nature due to their lesbian subject matter, but for me, they're simply about my life. They chronicle thirty years of my journey so far:
breaking off the engagement with my male fiancé
my first lesbian relationship
the commitment ceremony (which I refer to as my wedding or my marriage throughout the site)
the end of my marriage
falling head over heels in love with Kodi Wolf (who I think is an extremely talented bard both in and out of the Xena-verse)
formally divorcing my ex
planning my handfasting to Kodi
the handfasting ceremony
the death of my father
the death of our cats
There are 230 poems on this site. They are divided into sections based on the decade in which they were written. Each section lists the poems from that time in chronological order. At the end of each poem, you'll find my Author's Notes, which I've written to give some idea of what inspired the poem, or where my head was at, at the time. I use pseudonyms for most of the people I refer to in my poems and Author's Notes. I've also included a few of my own photographs throughout the site.
I've also written one story, which you can find in the Stories section of this site.
If you would like to learn more about how I got into writing poetry and the formation of this Web site, please take a few moments to read the About page.
With all that said, go check out my poetry. And if it touches you, I wouldn't mind hearing about it (my e-mail address is at the bottom of every page).
