Passion Fire


It burns inside,

this dancing flame.

I feel the heat,

and I'm not the same.

Strengthened by breath,

the flames are fed.

Colors that meld,

yellow, orange and red.

Causing a glow,

that penetrates dark.

It burns so fiercely,

hitting its mark.

Blazing a path,

where I use to be whole.

Leaving cinders behind,

from heart to soul.

This fire consumes,

all in its wake.

As across the coals,

I am raked.

Leaving me,

with intense heat.

Sweat is absorbed,

by the sheets.

You are my flame,

my one desire.

My ragging inferno,

My Passion Fire!!!
