With Hot Flames Lapping In Savory Fires

With Hot Flames Lapping In Savory Fires

Our worlds were flying so close, side by side
yours in beauty , mine in very deep pain.
Fate, that life painter, caused our great collide
we victims, blessed in our loving gain.

Stars fell apart , crashing of burning sun,
super nova lit our swelling desires.
Our long sweet ride that moment had begun,
hot flames lapping in savory fires.

Your eyes drew me into another dream
your voice angels begged to imitate.
Each touch, my body burning hot steam
nights our senses entered another state.

As time sealed our union in sweetest bliss
memories thus born, gave our love its shine.
Your all , put into every blessed kiss
and you dear heart forever to be mine.

Each morn, sends me into another dream,
the sight of your naked body in bed.
Always enough, to swim there in your stream,
paradise floating in my grateful head.

Thanks for placing my poem my friend. I hope you may consider one day sponsoring a sonnet based(AS IN ANY SONNET FORM) contest, with subject matter to be of the poet's own choosing. As nobody could ever question in any way you ability to judge sonnets...or IMHO YOUR FAIRNESS IN DOING SO..
