Fire in the Heart

Forbidden, deep inside her heart it grew.
It needed only one spark to ignite.
Repressing it was what she had to do.
Extraordinary was the ember’s might!

Incessantly, she had been tempted till
No longer could she fight, so she gave in!

That man she’d been resisting broke her will.
Hotter, the ember burned beneath her skin.
Exploding with passion, she then was lost. 

How quickly by lust’s flames was she consumed!
Exquisite was the burning, but at what cost?
A deep regret soon rained down; she was doomed.
Rejected by the scoundrel and bereft,
The woman, alone and with child, was left.

Written April 28, 2016 for the ELEMENTS Part 4: Fire Contest of Brian Davey

    and the fires still burns. You've wonderfully captured the power our hearts have to bring us love and pain.

    Fantastic! Ironic. A friend fears she fell into this very trap! We were speaking just yesterday...

    Being one who enjoys the challenge of an Acrostic, and invariably uses a rhyming format, I find this extremely well written, Moreover, your story line, reflects an all too common happening. One I've seen far too many times in my life! This acrostic certainly does you credit Andrea. Regards, Rhymer aka Denis. (A newbie here, I'm still trying to find my way around!) Hope my posting here is the 'write' place? Lol!

    A great poem, Andrea. I would have eliminated the spaces though so that it looks like the sonnet which you wrote. GL with the contest and a 7

    My dear Sonnetier, If there is fire in your heart, then why search for what you have not lost? Good luck!
