the flames of desire

 THE FLAMES OF DESIRE

 

  1. you are fanning
  2. the flames that spread
  3. that yearn to be held
  4. and contained in a brazier
  5.  
  6. The fire spreads
  7. it has burned
  8. into the heart of men
  9. your heart yearns
  10.  
  11. To be with the woman or your dreams
  12. she fits into the scheme 
  13. of things that be
  14. your yearnings
  15.  
  16. It is thy heart
  17. that be before thee
  18. your heart burns
  19. and yearns
  20.  
  21. The beauty of love
  22. is what I see
  23. when I loik at thee
  24. you fan the flames that burn
  25.  
  26. you cause it to be extinguished
  27. by no means
  28. burns bright
  29. into the night
  30.  
  31. the flight
  32. of an angel 
  33. is what I see
  34. my heart is a blaze
  35.  
  36. for the love of thee
  37. you have poured gasoline on coals of love
  38. they esplode into light and heat
  39. that warms the cockolds  of life
  40.  
  41. you are a delight
  42. you excite the night
  43. you are not trim
  44. nor slight
  45.  
  46. The flames burn
  47. bright into the night
  48. they fold their hands about me
  49. warmth soothes the soul
  50. I yearn to be
  51.  
  52. with thee
  53. your tongues touch me
  54. scrotch the calm sea
  55. The tranquility
  56.  
  57. is no more
  58. as score
  59. climbs into the night
  60.  
  61. Golden tongues
  62. heat my soul                             
  63. Set ablaze
  64.  my heart
  65.  

 

The End
