Desire --- For Catie's Re-Write Contest

DESIRE (Catie's Poem)

I thirst for one drop
precious the nectar of hearts
fill my cup to overflow.
Flames dance in the light
like my soul reaching for love
a constant, steady rhythm.

THE FIRE (My Re-write) ~ I dare not to stop, dangerous nectar of hearts, which fills me with temptation. A torch in the dark, like a moth reaching for love, willing to die in the flame.
.........For Catie

    "I dare not to stop,"..."willing to die in the flame"!! Mrs. Richards!! : ) Terrific! They're twin poems! You two should write a collaboration. Great work, Carrie! Ruben.
