"At the Edge of the Fire"

The flame

Holding you close

To it

Dancing daily

Nobody can see us

Excersices in futility

But we can groove

Bustin a move

Hollowing out the floor

Cutting up rugs

Throwing ourselves into it

To feel the burn

Heat

Hot

Melting flesh into a thick pudding

Proof that we do mix

Ready to taste

Don't let any go to waste

The essence

The chemicals

Combustible engines

Racing towards a wall

Embracing for impact

Body parts flying everywhere

Oh the humanity

Oh my insanity

My infatuation

My home

Torched

Burning

Desire

Fueled by you

Feeding the flame at the edge of the fire

      I almost wish for the passion of youth...then I realize passion is non-bias. Intense work, reminds me of a Foreigner love song. Vibrant use of illusions.

      Thanks Robert, I love Foreigner. I'm good at illusions and delusions. Thanks for stopping by and the kind words, as always.

      Great flow to this poem, I could see the couple dancing in the fire of passion to the rhythm of your song. Jamie
