Taste of lover searing tongue

Like Irish whiskey

Swallowed too quickly

Flesh to flesh

Flames licking two bodies

Fuel on the pyre

Profane sacrifice on altar

Blaze dancing in two hearts

Spiraling outwards



Both consumed by the Fire

With or without it always aches

One feels the Burn

    Thank you for referring me to this poem.. It is passionate, intense and ablaze with erotic imagery. Thank you so much for sharing.

    1. You’re very welcome. If you take a browse through my archives you may find more that you find interesting. In your reading your blog posts it struck me how much you remind me of myself about a decade younger. The passion is still there as we age, but the expression just changes as we grow. Keep writing Soraya as people find your truth enlightening.

  2. The Enfant Terrible

    I shall indeed take a gander as I love what I have read so far! Thank you so much for the encouragement. I shall indeed keep writing as long as I am connected and others see a truth or feel a connection to my expressions. By the way, from reading YOUR posts, you sound like you still have that passion!

    1. lol My passion was always there. These days it finds its expression mostly in my creative writing, and in being my authentic self in front of others without fear. It has been a long road to find myself again as I fell into an abyss of emptiness. Some of my unhealthy choices were killing me slowly like a prolonged form of suicide. I’m still breathing, and I would rather enjoy as long a life as I can. Besides living well means that those who dragged you down haven’t won.
