Aflame

Aflame

A Poem by Michelle N. H.

Burning Bed by EveLiveseyI feel it crawling by the spine

Something of mine, of yours

I cannot hold

And I try to taste it

In my mouth

But my tongue

Isn't free enough


I struggle to dwell

In an orb as intense

    The moist..

        The smoke..

I hold my breath

In the fires where

Bodies burn to death

Spirits survive


I feel it crawling

In the heat

This sweat of mine

Transparent pearls

Slowly sliding down my back


Your skin

Sodden, dripping wet

By heated coals

And ash

You are describing something here in poetic words the feelings every human felt . In other words . If I summed up all what you just described with one single word . It is perhaps " Desire ". It is artistically expressed in poetic form .

If someone felt it and chose not to get burn and came out unscathed . The he or she is better than the mighty Samson who tasted the bitter amber of trickery with desire by playing with fire . This is an awesome write .

Goodmorning to you Babae... :)

My goodness, Mi, this is something totally different from you, but how do I adore it. I feel very much into this one, the love, the heat, the humidity of the weather, the burning sun, the rebirth, into another place,another person, another home, The butterfly effect, also here... gosh, deep, rich, you amaze me once again. I love you write so well, and express your inner deepest feelings. It's fantastic to see this change here. I truly admire this piece.

Funny, I just posted a heat themed poem but this is quite hot. lol Very intense and passionate and also like burning up on the inside. Almost like in and out of two very different flames. Which is a very rare experience but an incredible one for the reader I am very impressed with this poem. As we say here.. It's fire! Write on and it's nice to see you around.

I will not pretend to understand every word you write or that passes between your lips; I myself am fond of self-interpretation, of any others art. So I will say this. Your poem, your voice of your visions and experiences--is a beautiful one. Whether it come from the darkest aspects of your shadow, or strait from the heart, and whether it be interpreted, or misinterpreted, be damned--it is nonetheless beautiful.
