When love bites

Something about you Makes me want to do Things I’ve never dreamt before It’s not the beauty of your eyes Nor the magic of your smile That lures me to your shore It’s knowing in my heart You made the fire start And in your flames I'm going to burn Savory kisses may turn to blood Bitten helplessly by love A chance I’d have to learn Immersed in a sea of love Out of darkness flies the doves And our hearts are set free I can’t resist your touch Your body paints me with a brush Of red passionate strokes Pray this moment last forever... As forever goes... 'Cause when love bites you... the fever yearns and burns

"But for now I can’t resist your touch Your body paints me with a brush Of red passionate strokes " - gorgeous imagery, and metaphorically wonderful, Arturo.

The passion in this poem really grabbed my attention. That third verse with the flames burning is especially exciting. You could sing a love song to ladies anytime, Arturo. Hugs, Carolyn

"How do I love thee, let me count the ways" E.B. Browning...Your metaphor's are magic in this beautiful poem Arturo. 'Savory kisses may turn to blood When bitten helplessly by love' implies how fragile and unpredictable the passion of love is. It can make you feel bliss, or ill, it can even make you suicidal. Yet we all yearn for that burn. I love this poem and am putting it into my faves Arturo. A magnificent creation! xxoo

I always remember someone telling me..."your poem must be interesting from the first word, not somewhere in the middle or at the end, each line must a page the reader would want to turn... Thanks Harry

"bitten helplessly"... Sounds playful and delightfully bad in all the right ways. Excellent write my friend. Happy and light, yet deep and strongly moving. Captured... Ann

Arturo, a beautiful romantic poem dripping with forever love, your line "a fire starts with a single spark" really spoke to me as the moment my eyes saw my to be love, I knew he was the one, sadly I only find him now in his forever sleep but the forever love still shines bright ~

That's the science we have to study,... why do some people like the sting...or is it just part of the bite...and that's how the cookie crumbles.... Thank you Jennifer...

Aeturo, I like this poem. Gerald's comment was spot on. I'm listening to Robert Plant's 'Sea of Love' in honor of your poem. -Richard
