Best Petra Mallett Poems

+ Fav Poet


Reckless abandon to feel desire
Carelessly fanning lonely fires.
Flames leap to warm the soul
A moment captured
And a yawning hole closes.

A vacancy filled for but a brief moment.
A tenderness felt within a comforting arm.
Strangers embrace: instinct takes over
Souls ignite ~
~ Where’s the harm?

Instant gratification:
Adverse denial.

(approx. 1994)
