Love Awakes


Love
resides within a dormant place
within our soul
ready to ignite

Along comes a match
and strikes
a flicker, smoke rises
embers crackle and pop
to a rhythm familiar to the soul

So you rise, cautious
as the wind captures your glow
and strips naked
the shadows
only freedom knows

It rises, it grasps
unleashed in desire
it but only knows
to possess and be conquered

Insatiable her flame
her heat so toxic
sends an alarm
only he can quench it

So he does
and dowses her
with shame and with guilt
for her flame was meant only
to kindle a twig
