Passion's Flame

You are my fire

Each time I see you

my heart skips a beat.

Sometimes I want to run,

sometimes I want to retreat.

From the slam of emotions

I get like a tidal wave.

Love, happiness, and desire,

all at once, it's hard to behave.

With every touch you

set my skin sizzling.

With every kiss, inside

my head is whistling.

Movement to movement

it's hard to conceal.

My breath, my heart

two things you steal.

My body is yours

when you are around.

Igniting a passion

only you can ground.

Release this fire

that is inside of me.

Take me in your arms

and set our fire free.

There is a flame that is coming out into view. Such a way to express one's need for letting go and to find a way to stop hiding. Beautiful Leslie.

Another passionate poem of yours that's has heat that scorches the soul. Enjoyed reading it for it has a feverish pace which matches the emotion! Also I invite you to my posted Hub poem titled "Burning" which is similar in concept. Give it a read and welcome your comment.
