Embers Glowing... (3) - Poem by Daniel Lloyd Kennedy

If you are easily offended by eroticism in even it's mildest form, please do not read any further... This is not pornographic, but merely graphic in it's meaning...

There was always more than just an affection for each other
Like glowing embers, their passions aroused ignition of their senses
There closeness now infusing a heat, like embers rekindling a fuel to flame
His need for wanton desire from her, is quenched as he moves lower
Her willingness splayed, she answers with vocal reprise, insatiating his own needs
Continued explosions of loves release, shudder through out her repeatedly
With each new quivering wave she pleasures in, his own fiery desire is enhanced
In fervent action he fills her require to depths she now wallows in
As one their souls meld, bringing each, reward and completion
Satiated in their release, they fall to bedding now lying askew, to embrace
The shallowed, sharp breathing, only now diminishing to more normal breaths
Their flames fade again to glowing embers, only waiting desires renewal
His slightly rough hand toying with her hair in the rooms dim light
Is all the proof she needs of his devotion to her

This is the last in my series. The first was 'A Fire Begins'. The next was 'Blazing, Licking, Roaring Flames...' As one might agree, the embers burn long, long after the fires flames are gone... So too does true love... The question that now remains, are you adding the fuel to keep the embers hot? If so, the fire will never die... Now, Go... Make Love, Not War...
