Burning Heart












Drifting  amidst thoughts  of you
days are long; endless night
weakening , my resolve to be strong
restless, sleepless, dreaming fits
 
Under a sunless sky, roaming alone
wearing a cloak of pain, hiding desire
flames growing  higher & higher
passion rising, feverish pitch

Warm flesh  scorched,  torch of love
silently killing me, awake in a dream
anguish cry  burning heart, longing
for cooling water,  gentle rain shower

Creature of mania, hopelessly devoted
yearning for a touch, a gentle caress
resting my head against your chest
tasting  the sweetness of your lips

Whispering words of affection
feeling the rhythm of our hearts..beat
our fingers play a soaring melody
magical tunes only we can hear

Remove my cloak, reveal vulnerability
collapsing into perfect harmony
finding respite in your loving arms
experiencing tranquility...

  11. Good morning, Truedessa...

    I can't think of anything more vulnerable than...

    ... allowing ourselves to be vulnerable.

    We take a chance every time we step out on that thin ice... don't we?

    1. Good Afternoon Shoes,

      Nice to see you again. I think you might have something there about being vulnerable. We do take a chance every time we step on thin ice as we risk breaking and sometimes it is hard to get back up.

    2. ... and evidently, we think it MUST be worth it... because we keep trying.

      No?

  13. A romantic journey - opening up is often the most frightening thing. Well expressed.
