Zephyr - Poem by j.c. monterrosa

I burn with flames that lick my soul,
A once proud core doused in malaise,
Lust and knowledge forever clashing,
Melting in the blaze…

Heart and spirit intertwined,
Fueled by passion, loving blind
Hungry words from your tongue drip
My solace found between your lips…

Warm and gentle words caress me,
the stoking breeze of long ago,
heal me now and stop this bleeding,
Fill me with your amber glow…

Crisp in callused winter gray
My waking thoughts slay every dream,
Rouse me with your westward winds,
Save me with your heart sublime,
Show me love your way…
