Poem -

The Fierce Flame

Distinguished

The Fierce Flame

Faithfully, I feel a fierce fire burning everywhere
Even as a chiding chill grips the night air
You remain a hushed acclaim, yet assured flame
That burns desire inside me, bearing no shame 

How will we ever touch the Heaven we know
Without a street of dreams forming a crossroad?
I sense your warm touch even with my eyes closed 
Love's flush fills my face, with intentions exposed

Your doting words douse me in desire's drenching haze
They act as an accelerant for seductive blaze 
And I am caught on the cusp of surrender
Waiting for your love's embrace to remember
 
I want to taste forever in your tempting kiss
Wear your heat's insignia when our hearts insist
Partake in passion's persistent pact to play
And live in the moment of one perfect day

Oh, woe to a world that will not understand
Our love is the fierce flame with aching demand
It cannot be haltered, faltered, or extinguished
And to this end, it intends to burn, distinguished

Hello, Pratibha!  Thank you! ;)  I am so glad you like my passionate romance pieces, because that is what I love to write about as my favorite genre of poetry.. I think you quoted the two lines that were my favorites to write. What is life without love or exciting feelings that move us and keep us inspired?  I think passionate feelings are a state of mind, and definitely a part of my personality. I write about what I find beautiful and motivating to me. I am so honored you pinned this one. Bless you!  I am grateful for all your kind support.  xo Love n Hugs

A Lonely Journey

Hi Cheerie, 
I thought it was finally summer here in NY, but it's actually a phenomenon called Flaming Cheerieitus, and it appears to be affecting me on a grand scale, as I feel as though I'm sitting on the sun. 
Seriously, though, that is just a beautifully written, yet intensely sensual poem right there. Just gorgeous. I so love the way it feathers between gorgeousness and desire, sweetness and heat, and is still drenched in love. Beautiful writing Cheerie, that made my day, it's just so perfectly you, a beautiful person, yet steamy. 
Here are some amazing lines I adored: 
'I sense your warm touch even with my eyes closed 
Love's flush fills my face, with intentions exposed' 

(Oh my gosh, is that warm! You know, gentle words are so much more appealing, and exciting then foul ones, and I love the way you did that, along with this next line:) 

'Your doting words douse me in desire's drenching haze
They act as an accelerant for seductive blaze' 
(actually, the whole stanza, as it just screams passion, but so gently, and beautifully put). 

And this: 
'I want to taste forever in your tempting kiss
Wear your heat's insignia when our hearts insist' 

(It's so temptingly beautiful, OMG). 

And the end was fantastic. 
You are the perfect writer, young lady. Exciting, yet refined, smart, yet soft, wonderful, yet amazing. 
Great poem, loved it! 
Love and hugs, 
Matthew.

Hi Matthew....Wow!  I have said it before, but I am serious when I say that you should be paid as a professional commentor because you say such elaborate awesome things! Some days, when I feel insecure about my poetry, I can come read what you say and all of a sudden I feel I am in line for an academy award...lol.  How do you do that?  Thank you for making me think of my poetry in a different light. I love the way you see my words. You get my heart.  That is always a blessing. Love n Hugs, xo Cheerie ;)

Hi Ezrarimbaud. Wow! I do not know how to respond to your comment. Thank you! I love to do love poems, and always seek to come up with lines that make my poem not like others and not even like my own other love poems. I like that you pointed out that line that you liked. It helps me to know what works. Bless you. I appreciate your support.  xo ;)

Hey Cherie! I think the great thing about love is that it has many interpretations and can be compared to just about anything of the words are perfect. It’s no problem to support you, I enjoy your work very much. Keep it up as you are great at it x

It certainly does have many interpretations and situations as well, and always easy to inspire for poetry. Thanks again.  xo ;)
