From deep inside me
the burning comes
beginning with a single lonely flicker
when I’m starved for your love
growing into a white hot flame
when I’m holding you close
mixing your breath and mine
with your body besides mine.
Only you control this burning love
I have for you…
which I will save until you are ready
to be set on fire.
