and post notes and photos about your poem like Mark J. Halliday.
Something romantic for a contest about flames. I took the expression to heart about calling one's lover his flame.
My Only Flame
Love, like fire, is all-consuming,
And forever should be blooming.
Endless courtship is not a game.
As we watch each year’s seasons turn,
My torch for you will ever burn.
No regrets giving you my name.
You always will my soul inspire,
Forever be my one desire--
My first and last and only flame.
