Falling In



Initial warmth travelled

Between our new bodies

A prelude to a spark

Igniting a wick

Softening the wax, now

Circulating as reddened lava

Through my body.

We have lit a flicker

The pilot light of us


Your voice is a fire

And your skin’s temperature

A soft friction of sparks

Memorized and ablaze

Upon my spirit, as

My bones yield to

Become kindling

For the hearth

Of our impassioned house

    Very nice. I particularly liked ‘memorized and ablaze upon my spirit, as my bones yield to become kindling for the hearth’.

    “A prelude to a spark” sparked my interest. I don’t know what you were aiming for, but the visuals of a couple intertwined, writhing flashed into my mind. Great writing! Loved it.
