Our Passions on Fire My Darling

A very long time passed between us
Before we met once again
Quite unexpectedly surprisingly
Exchanging very intense looks
Harboring most hungry urges
Possessing the wildest desires
Feeling rebounding emotions
Charged nerves electric and cosmic
Greeting happily and nervously
Walking closely together but unsure
Interested and yet afraid of what 
Next could happen . . .

A drink or two or three later at the bar
Then a couple more sitting in the booth
Losing the edge pent up tension from before
Us both now quite talkative
Us both now quite oblivious to time
Us both now quite friendlier
Us both now quite guarded still
We now hold hands remembering
Fun times much laughter much smiling
Depressing times much hurt much unhappiness
Like strangers in the night we really are
But not attracted for the very first time
Ready and wanting to start over again 
But not so sure of the “forever” part
Interested and yet afraid of what 
Next could happen . . .

And then—suddenly it magically happened . . .
Like destiny taking charge at once
Your touch my touch our touch one touch
Emotions exploding eyes probing hands feeling
Moving closer becoming one and one and one
Breathing faint then excited and more so
Crying sobbing laughing smiling revealing
Our eyes locked rocked as one in a spiral
Saying I missed you so much
Saying you missed me so much
A burning yearning desire a trembling fire
Our lips meet sweetly hungrily with much intent
Our desires at fever pitch ravenous and craving
Igniting our passions on fire on fire on fire on fire

Shutting out the rest of the world—be gone from us
While crying holding caressing kissing openly and deeply
We find each other all over again and again
A giddy feeling of love lost yet love found again
Asking why? How come? How could we? Why not?
This time all is forgiven—our bond unbroken
Our love rediscovered our lives restored
Our personalities mesmerized as one
Our minds in tune same time and channel
Our emotions most electric and having fun
Our oneness whole and most rewarding
Our love and desire both for an eternity
Our hearts afire our hearts’ desire
Our passions on fire my darling!

    We all look for the magic sparkle that will ignite the passion in our hearts but this comes only when the heart ready is to set itself aflame, Dear Gary! A didactic writing that every heart would benefit from the teaching! Wonderfully done!

    well done Gary. I enjoyed this piece. It gets scary at times meeting a old love. wondering if what was then will happen again good or bad. Is it worth the effort. You put me right in the situation and had me read on. thanks for this delightful poem.

    Ach wie Schoen! It would be so wonderful if we could all find our first loves and relight the flames. I wouldn't mind seeing my first love again.

    The repeated parts were astounding, Gary. Such a beautiful exquisite picture of love. I could relate very well to this piece. It moved me.

    I recently met a couple who were reunited after 20 years and they are now about to be married. He was unaware that he was the love of her life. Fortunately fate reunited them. I enjoyed your poem.

    You mentioned where you lived about a mountain range, not far from where you lived. I can't get the name of them out of my mind the witch mountains, you picked Fangoria's interest here lol why do they call them that? Fangoria needs input?cheri

    You know the one, whom you wish to know at least what happened to them. Yet in the back of ones mind you have to wonder if that spark would be their if you ever saw each other once more. You've captured this factor and expressed it so well, nice job my friend. Glad you enjoyed my work so much also, cheri

    Hello Gary, enjoyed reading your comments I still love the name you gave me, this wok of your is very detailed and this why I like your work so much detail is important it's what makes the texturing to poems so enjoyable in some respects. I feel the fassion of both of your characters in your poem, lost lovers finding each other again. Silent lovers whom renew their friendship, and each other at the same time great job Gary. I think everyone has someone in their passed that is hard to forget, cd
