Burst Of Fire


Oh, for that burst of fire,
within a ring of feeling, the
fire of love consummate

For the overpowering desire,
the desire for fire, the living
feeling like a being alive

Seizing, overpowering its victim,
unifying all rivulets of desire in a
flaming quagmire, burning alive

Inflamed in an all-consuming, over-
powering desire, torturing, tortuous,
delightful, delicious, destruction of

All restraint, instinctual seizure,
instincts alive in burning desire,
aflame, alight, lighted, lightning

Shocking, deft retreat, hynotised,
frozen fire, desire alight, aflame -
in love consummate

Submitting to fire, sparkling, blowing
apart, insensate, desire satiate, briefly,
evolving upon the new knowing

Kindling upon new experience, stirring
memories ancient, increasing instinctual
release, a never-ending spiral

Flaming higher, desire awakened anew,
flaming higher, insatiate, a force uncontained,
unrestrained, joyous submission, peaking

Peaking, growing forever ascending, a
spiraling curve of growing explosions
until melting together forever…

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
