The racing fires of passion in our veins
The searing infernos consuming us
Have crumbled to tepid ashes
Snuffed by the smothering weight of life
Extinguished by lazy overfamiliarity
And suffocating waves of unending lethargy.
It is time
To rekindle our spark.

A heart that’s playful,
Body lustful, afire love,
Young passion blooming;
Excitement of something new
Courses hot through burning veins.
A heart that’s lifeless,
Body untouched, veins run cold,
Young love extinguished;
The new-felt pain of heartache
Like frostbite stinging the soul.

Cradling arms wake me,
Sweet morning breathless kisses,
Yielding at your touch.

Singeing tinder hearts.
