About the Poem

This is a poem about the passions of Love, intimacy and doubts.

Fire

Oh my love! I have breathed you in
Through the pores of my love - quenched skin;
For ours was not a moon laden with honey.
It was a moon bursting with fire,
Satiated by the drippings
Of our mutual desire.

Oh my love! You course through my veins,
Intermingled with what blood remains.
No longer does my heart pump that vital potion.
It crests your love like a waving ocean,
Bounding to shore with impassioned force;
Returning to its aortic source.

Oh my love! To what do I rush
To a desperate school girl's crush?
A pounding tsunami crashing my heart's shores?
A woman's passions sweating musk from my pores?
Which? I cry to the deaf - mute choir?
True love or unrestrained desire?

Oh my love! In which is it filed?
In the whimsy of a fickle child?
In an immature girl's intimate embrace?
Or in a woman's passionate grace?
Enlighten my aortic route.
Swell my love. Erase my doubt.

Incredible imagery and the words used are beautiful in themselves. I was touched by this poem as though it were the finger tips of the poet on my skin and his tongue lighting a flame within me that made me sizzle.

If there's anything that stood out...it was the relevance of love and desire expressed on bold print....key words being bold...strong...bedable!

you have the soul and the touch of a good author, your feelings were reflected so transpartent in you poem and it made me share the sound of the unsaid words or between the lines which you did not write, thanks a lot for sharing this poem with me. or at least giving me the chance to read it.
