Chase the emotion
around my heart
until it crystallises
A butterfly landing
on an open flower
Beauty upon beauty
My eyes water
and flood my face.

Building a fascination
into an obsession
Feed each word until
it etches on my heart
a blood tattoo more
red then black
that cuts across my eye.

A hunger that
pervades my essence
A yearning that cannot be categorised
A passion that cannot be rationalised
A feeling from the core that only intensifies

Annihilate alienation
Celebrate fascination
Imbibe motivation
Right to the core of the matter
to the the nuance of heart beat
Subtle sensations that climax
to bliss and beyond
A kiss like honey dew
and so strong
makes my stomach ache
with undying emotion.

A knowing that cannot be spoken
A love that cannot be broken
A fascination that burns
Flames that fire the soul
with the deep sensual flame
Tormenting the heart
Longing to embrace and engage another

Raw…it aches…
Skin on Skin
Heart on Heart
Matter doesn’t mind
When the heart is seduced
Look that sees the blood breathe
Touch that feels the pain
To reveal or to hide
the flame.

It’s sooooo hot
Flame to sweat
Spontaneous and welling
Dance of soul
Music of mind
Drama of heart
It is complete
when enraptured, intoxicated
and feed by longing
It is so hot it is wet…
exploding the boundaries of desire.

Removing the restraints of thought
And venturing where words cannot go…
To the very heart, the heat
the pain and the utter bliss
of passion.
