Afire with Passion

Feel the fire that burns in my heart
Draw nearer, you’ll find I’m ablaze
Desire is tearing me apart
This thing called love is madness, craze

Sweat trickles down upon my chest
I smolder with longing for you
You stoke the fires and do your best
To emit flames of sapphire blue

Douse this blaze with passion’s sweet kiss
Let me melt in your warm embrace
Not to act now would be remiss
I burn, I yearn to stroke your face

    Passionate is the word alright. Like one of the others, this would make a good song. Fine lyrics. Love, daver
