Flames of Love

Written by: Jayne Eggins

your love is the fire
I yearn to touch,
deep in my heart
ignites flame's of lust

your love is a lantern
shining through night,
it signals a desire
that thrashes to bite

your love lights stars
that tear holes in time,
your love is a riddle
at the end of my rhyme

your love caresses
the deepest I hurt,
your eyes see through
to where I was burnt

your love healed scars
time wore into my skin,
with the tiniest kisses
you absolved all my sins

your love brought life
to a Mistress of pain,
I’m not lost anymore
I breathe freely again
