Sex, Fire, And Nature

Sex, Fire, And Nature

A Poem by John Dennis Gillespie

Set the forest to flames and let the animals go haywire. 

We'll just lie down, down, down. 

Let the trees burn and the embers share their fire with the grass. 

We'll just lie down, down, down. 

With fawn like grace, you'll bring your face close to mine and we'll kiss a spiritual kiss that blazes infernos in our soul. 

The grasses' fire burns a trail toward our bare bodies, but when our arms are wrapped around each other; we can't be devoured or vanquished. 

There will be scars left on your breast and my chest and the flames will become artist and our bodies; its canvas. 

We are paintings. 

We'll just lie down, down, down. 

Scarred from the flames and scarred from sensation. 

The animals will collapse, the trees will fall surrender, the grass will fade to ashes and 

We'll just lie down, down, down.

This was beautiful and beautifully written. "There will be scars left on your breast and my chest and the flames will become artist and our bodies; its canvas" Every word put together sends images to my mind. Wonderful piece of work here! :)
