Love Bug

Written by: Cassandra Compher

The fire in your eyes burn
A rapid radiant glow

   A soulful stroll steps into
The twinkling of your toes

   The twist of your body responds
To the most generous gestures

   The harmony in your heart
Surrenders to a familiar notion
Of festive

   When the spectacular sparks
Trigger the twitching in your nose
And firecrackers flare the embrace
To explode

   Then you will finally feel the
Longevity of love in your entire life
   It’s enjoying the inevitable
Sting of the insect bite…
