and spark a fire alighting the ways
you heat up my nights and brighten my days
with nothing but words and the smile on your face.
Your touch comes slow though sporadic through time
And has left remnants of ash scattered on my mind
impressions left scorched below the surface of my skin
with ghostly twinges and my nerve endings singed.
The taste of your kiss lingers long on my lips
feel the heat of your breath as an ethereal mist
spectral batting of lashes tickles my chest
braising the hair on the back of my neck.
The warmth of your presence and damp of your depth
eagerly received the extent of my breadth
and has left me yearning and burning for more
of the same fevered friction that we shared once before.
But until we coalesce my heart remains warm
And the flame is kept safe from the face of the storm
Lost in your eyes unaware of the wall
Knowing faith in our fire keeps us safe from it all.
