Passion Wish - A Poem

Nora Jones

You wished for me and so I appeared

Like a storm that touched down, I don’t know why I’m here

with no clear intention I am one to be feared

Lightning crashing, and we have been seared

Infected with passion that can bring us to tears

You would never miss what was never near

but you wished for me and so I appeared


My waters rain down upon your skin

soak into your spirit, grab you from within

You don’t seem to realize the mess that you’re in

I’ve become your vice and your addiction

You have found your peace in the warmth of my skin

and are consumed by this rare connection

slowly being revived, fed by passion

without realizing that we’re each other’s victims


We both enjoy just letting go

no thinking or planning just going with the flow

where will it lead? neither one wants to know

we just want to bask in this passion’s glow

as it permanently burns into the skin of us both

we take our risks to enjoy the show

we laugh, we melt, we sin, we grow

so much more than lust wrapped up in a bow


You wished for me and so I will stay

for as long as I can til storms carry me away

some passion is fleeting, there may come a day

when we lose it all and can’t find a new way

There is a chance that our feelings can lead us astray

or life’s calls of caution force us to obey

and put aside the passion in which we love to play

I do not let fear keep me from your embrace

for I know that this is not always the case

I live in the moment, I mean what I say

Those strong in their passion can keep it in place

So here I am, come what may

You wished for me and so I will stay

Moms how the hell did I miss this? I got you on my scroll and yet I still missed this piece... maybe you didn't wish for me hard enough.. because like a Jehovah's witness I would have been at your door girl :)

You didn't miss it Frank. It was taken down because of the original photos I chose. It felt like it took forever to get republished. You want to become a Jehovah's Wit just to knock on my door Frank? Lol. That is funny, very cute. Is that all the poem inspired in you?

No reason to feel bad Frank. I have not read into all there is to you either. I just decided to visit your page often and pick at random what to explore from you. I am enjoying it now that I have found my inner book worm again.

You can't miss me, I'm right here. You know where to find me.

Wow... what an incredibly beautiful and moving poem... there is so much ... "infected with passion that can bring us to tears" ; that IS passion and what everyone seeks

Lovely Lissette, I am voting up and sharing

Thanks for the smile Laurinzo... I love comments that begin in wow, hahaha... People tend to hide their passion. I do not see why if so many seek it.

Us poets can't hide our passion it pours out; hopefully on the page (or screen)

Moms-Secret 3 years ago from Central Florida Author

It does seem to be a lot less intimidating on the page than in person Laurinzo. So many people want to hold me close and shy away in fear simply because I stir feelings and life.

The gender neutrality in this poem was very considerate of you. Since there may be bisexual or homosexual lovers of people of the same gender. The picture helped to illustrate things for me. I also created a similar picture of two lovers running to each other on a shore in my own head as I read this.


Moms-Secret profile image

Moms-Secret 3 years ago from Central Florida Author

I am happy that you enjoyed it newenglandsun. I can't take credit for its neutrality. It was quite accidental. I am happy that you brought it to my attention. It is something I am now proud of. Had I been more of a planned person and not a creature of the moment or the flow, I would really want to include as many as possible since acceptance and universal love are in my nature.

I especially like creating images and evoking feelings in others so your last sentence is very flattering as well. I am filled with elated gratitude.


newenglandsun 3 years ago

That's okay to take credit for accidental things.


newenglandsun 3 years ago

Sorry. Been a while. Here's another anarchist.

Moms-Secret 3 years ago from Central Florida Author

I would never take credit for an accident, lol. Its humanities Achilles heel. :)

I am very familiar with this particular anarchist. Love his work. Grateful to have been once compared to him and Mother Teresa, tho the vision of the persons bearing such compliments were severely altered and biased by caring & love for me. I am much to balanced to compare with such good. I love and appreciate my bad and my good.

I accept you and your label of anarchist Daniel. Will you accept me in my resistance to adopt labels?


newenglandsun 3 years ago

That's why I stopped asking you about labels.

I do not want you to hold your questions. I find them intriguing. It is communication and it is interesting. I have always preferred them. Besides, with out your curiosity you faded (tho I realize that it could be a coincidence.)

Second to the blending of words, pairing art to a work is a favorite of mine. I only wish it were easier to find who the true artists are. I would love to give the proper credits. I always smile gratefully when someone likes the pairing. Thanks for the smile LChristaine.

Wow, I'm blown away by this poem... Reminds me... I'm overflowed with emotions at this moment, the trigger in your words... so beautifully written... you've have a way I've lost some time ago... you've inspired me to keep trying, keep writing, release what's grown for so long... I can't explain how this poem has touched me today... God bless you, Moms-Secret, God bless you...
