Embers glow from the memory of a flame
Burning red hot – at the whisper of her name
Hoping that she too, must somehow feel the same
And forever, inside, burning embers shall remain
A heart, once on fire, keeping souls immersed in heat
For a chance to burn again and lustfulness repeat
Embers left unstirred will surely soon burn out
But a soft, gentle breeze and fire again will start to sprout
My embers burn for you from the night that we once shared
Engulfed in love’s flames; throwing caution to the air
Combustible lust – other lovers should beware
My embers only burn for the girl with golden hair
