A Flame Once Burned

                              The Flame Burnt Hot.
The air was thin, standing looking out of the small window
Flying to Tunisia through a cloud level that was low
Stretching my legs and peering down the fuselage 
From the flight deck, appeared the man who was definitely in charge.

His dark good looks struck me, they hit me like a blow
He came and stood in front of me and then he said “Hello.”
Dark limpid brown eyes, dressed in a uniform so smart
If we had been there longer, he may have stolen my beating heart.

Holding in his hand, a bar of dark chocolate
Broke a piece off it, and asked me if I’d like to partake.
Not being a fan of chocolate, but I am a fan of a uniform so grand
I let him feed it to me out of his large, strong, tanned hand.

The flame was burning bright as we looked deep into each others eyes
When my husband tapped him on the shoulder much to our surprise
The pilot turned and offered him a piece of chocolate too
I think you may guess the answer, and what he told him then to do.

The flame that burned oh so hot, was snuffed in just a second
A warning to all those girls, for whom a uniform may beckon
When a tall dark pilot offers to feed you from his hand
Make sure there’s no one around round so that flame can then be fanned…

    Mandy, I can see why your entry placed 1st. It's delightfully clever and returns a smile that developed on that evening flight to Tunisia. You see, I was there, just out of ear shot, taking a smoke break. I remember the occasion well.... Love Ya..... Jake

    I'm a sucker for a gal in a nurse's uniform...don't know why for sure...but i think a fly gal could get me high too...great write...nice to see that the gals admit to roving eyes like me...was born that way so i'm assuming it's okay...if not i'll blame it on god...about time he takes responsibility for f---ups like me. I'm sorry i'm too sensitive...but i didn't come with a measuring cup...and that's why it ran over onto the floor.
