Core Collision/ Distorted Memory (poems)

For today’s daily prompt word “core”, I am posting two poems.
“Core Collision” which I have written today and “Distorted Memory” which I wrote at the end of January.
I would be interested to know which you like better.

Enjoy!

Core Collision

Your heart touches mine
and burns with an intensity of emotion
Flames engulf our love
with passion
A stellar collision
as our cores merge and we become one
Inseparable
Time has no meaning
as we drift
on separate paths but remain connected
My heart a gift to you
and your heart forever in my soul

Distorted Memory

Memories, reminders
Details forgotten
Buried, dormant
Within the earth’s core
Volcanic mood awakened

Memories, unbidden
Thoughts arise
Molten, consuming
Igniting awareness
As burning magma ascends

Memories, cognition
Crater breached
Eruption, exploding
Emotions unleashed
Fiery shower of sparks

Memories, released
Lava creeping
Unhurried, destroying
False knowledge
Leaving truth in its path

[I love the romance of Core Collision, but think that Distorted Memory is very cleverly constructed]
