Burning Desire

Burning Desire


He was a bright spark,

She his old flame,

And when they got together

Fire burned again.


They rubbed together for a while

Blazing hot on tinder,

Burning looks, smouldering smile

Their passion couldn’t hinder.


Soon the hot and fiery pair

Could hold it in no more,

Igniting like a flare,

The furnace began to roar.


They consumed all they could find,

Eaten up by their desire

They scorched each other’s mind

And loving heat became a pyre.


At first they gave out warmth and light

And licking tongues became a joke

For as the fire began to bite

Their passion all went up in smoke.


When now they meet it all feels black,

Burning love has left their soul

Embers glow, but flames they lack

And all has turned to ash and coal.x
