Ember-ed Heart

Embers of the heart remain
burn hot and crackle still
thoughts ignite in glowing white
the truth that heat reveals
Here on skin where thoughts descend
that spark in fiery gaze
smoky eyes that hypnotize
aloft on dreams she plays
Wake to find the burning
yearning hot with wanton thrills
mirrored soul beyond control
the warmth the eye conceals
Caught upon a moment
captured fire on jaded time
just a glance of circumstance
to leave the dark behind
Consummation of elation
raging hot and burning still
skin ignites the shades of night
to touch and taste and feel
Forged in sweat and past regret
these fires are fanning flame
burning hot to crackle caught
in embers that remain
