My only wish I could again feel bliss

Inflamed by passion’s joys which once had sprung

Sensations were implanted by her kiss

 

The darting curious movements of her tongue

The firmness of the pressure from her breast

The ecstasy bursting from a mouth so young

 

And I perceived from deep within my chest

The fluttering stammering pulsing of her heart

Our secret longings we could not arrest

 

The sparks like errant fireflies did dart

Between us in a ballet oh so splendid

But soon I felt there was the need to part

 

Before we could engage, our bodies blended

Like smoke into the air our love had ended

The subject matter goes very well with this poetic format, two passions blending together in rhyme, a memory of past times.
