Charred – A Collaboration with Perso~in~Poesia

fire:

As a candle bears a blistered reminder of its conflagration
my soul is marred and charred by the memory of you…
yet the thought of your flame still ignites my desire
the pleasure of your burn still alters my hue
my heart a quick-fuse longing for your ignition

Fire, fire set in motion, engulfing words that burn
my flesh is marred and charred by the memory of you…
from the deepest point, my joints sizzle contracting muscles
that ache for the touch and feel of your sensuous core
to let it blister and boil as my greed springs from a coil

My body—tinder—awaiting the errant spark of your flint
my hopes marred and charred by the memory of you…
invoke my wick once more—feast on my warmth
melt for me with feverish convulsions
let me bathe in you as paraffin to fire

My mind erupts, flowing hot liquid magma, oozing
my being marred and charred by the memory of you…
leaving a crust surrounding my heart that is petrified
in a capsule that will survive a millennium of time
so the future may discover true love was found buried alive

It was awesome to work up this sultry collaboration with the mighty Ax over at Perso~in~Poesia! Thanks my brother for writing with me again!

  1. my flesh is marred and charred by the memory of you…
    I love love love L.O.V.E. this, and the repetition works just brilliantly. I am so loving you guys. And you will not believe it, I knew the instant i did a cursory glance at first, that you led this one because i recognized Ax in the second verse. True Ax fashion. You two are like peas in a pod. I’m so tempted to do a trio with you two.
