Warmth In Fire - Poem by Moth Harris

Embers light the fire
Brake down the bark
Fueling heart and desire
Lost from the start
Oh, but I love being lost with you

I'd say the fire lights up my life
but I don't have to
because I think you feel it too
I just want to stay here
and be warm
Right next to you

Made it passed the wire
Painted like art
Keep on rolling like a tire
You have my heart
and the blood is swirling so beautifully

I thought you'd like to hear
My every thought and word
The only problem is
It's summed up in three simple words
I love you

Singing with the choir
Never to part
You're the one I admire
Fire was the spark
and now my world is lit up so beautifully.

    well crafted, and great imagery. The ambivalence one feels between the warmth of a flame and the terror that fire can elicit comes thru to me anyway, similar to that of the warmth of true love and the fire that reality brings to a relationship.
    C'mon. baby, light my fire!

    This was sensational when you rhymed in this one. However, it felt as if you had dine with Pablo Neruda. BRAVO! ! ! (Report) Reply
