On Fire

On Fire

A Poem by Marianne
"

I penned these thoughts without a pause...some rhyming worked for me...not sure about it for the reader, though!

"
A fire raging in my heart
Winding through the paths
Of love destined to spread
Through every single part
A fire igniting across the sea
From you to me
Morning and night it strikes
A light glowing inside our eyes
Illuminating the silent darkness
Burning into the sleepless sky
Watching over our love
Hiding our sorrow
Wiping away our tears
Releasing us from fears
As we hold each other tight
Kisses linger on lips
The luscious taste of
Scented sips
Precious golden honey
Elixir of a different kind
Not bought with money
A love, ocean wild and deep
Riding the tumultuous waves
From shore to shore, hungry
And always wanting more
Every touch sliding through
Our hands, fingertips on fire
Extending every desire
Proving our love to be true
To the end of time
I am yours, and you are mine.

What a beautiful and romantic piece.
Filled with so much love and passion.
I love the title, and the whole poem itself.
This is filled with strong emotions as well.
I like how it came straight from the heart, and came so naturally, you didn't have to think it through the words just came to you and you jolted them down.
Well written.
Keep on writing :)

"money can't buy me love"

it is like an ocean...can't buy that either...it is too vast, too much its own....

AH YES! This one DOES flow nicely from line to line . . . not choppy, despite the short line style. I really enjoy the sensuality of this message, without dipping low into crass or blunt sex talk.

This section is particularly powerful, personifying this light, this fire:
"A light glowing inside our eyes
Illuminating the silent darkness
Burning into the sleepless sky
Watching over our love
Hiding our sorrow
Wiping away our tears
Releasing us from fears"
