Burst Of Fire Poem by Louise Tredoux


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…
