Passion’s Flame

Wash away this heartache,
Cleanse me with your fire.

Breathe me in for you
Feed me your desire.

Punish me with searing
Brand me with each kiss.

Bind my body with your
Burn me with your bliss.

Help me soar beyond
the flame,
Guide me to your soul.

Hold me till I scream your
Fill me till I’m whole.

Take this trust gave
Hold it safe and sound.

My gift, I lay before
your feet,
The treasure you have found.

There are several levels and undercurrents to this poem. I feel that’s part of the beauty of life and experiences. I’d love to hear your interpretations/impressions of what you feel or see when you read it.

    Beautiful. I love the line about trust:
    Take this trust gave
    Hold it safe and sound.
    That’s a big part of intimacy. Trust. Giving it and the other person understanding what a precious gift that is.

    It reads almost like a chant. The rhythm pulls you along. I wonder if it it is more mystical than sexual. But, of course, the line between the two is very grey and malleable, yes?

    • Kitt Crescendo says:

      The rhythmic flow (or musicality as I like to call it) is a natural byproduct of combining my live of words and verse with my love of vocal music. I don’t know much of mysticism, but am quite knowledgeable about poetry…. I do agree, though. There is a fine line between the mystical (or magical) and the sexual. Even witches preferred their earth ceremonies to be done skyclad.

        It would probably make a wonderful song of yearning and offering. I could almost imagine it being sung in a church – well probably not a traditional church…

        • Kitt Crescendo says:

          You know, that thought occurred to me as well. There is a spirituality to that kind of connection. Some could see that as a celebration of the relationship between God and man…

          • erickeys says:

            Indeed. Back before my mind was corrupted by religion I always associated sexual images with my relationship to divinity. These days I long to return to such an innocent. I wonder if it is possible…

          • erickeys says:

            I suppose that’s true. I am my own worst enemy. I wonder what would happen if I just decided to be innocent again. Hmm…

    For me this immediately summons the uncommon depth of not just passionate lovers, but the further (and unquenchable) depths between a D/s or Top/bottom. When I was told by my “bottom”, and she meant it in all of its rawness, “I trust you with my life”….the significance of that ‘surrender’, that admission, more importantly that RESPONSIBILITY I have….is often impossible to put in words and carries with it the biggest honor (aside from being a father) I have ever experienced and continue to experience. 🙂

  4. ramblingsfromamum says:

    The structure is well done using the break in the 2nd line for emphasis.
    To me this is about trust, passion – the title well depicts the feelings you have brought through in your words. I also read as a possessive love. Very steamy lovely – enjoyed and well penned.

    Very beautiful. And I’m impressed by the conversation here. Whenever I try to post poetry on my bloig, it just falls flat. People write things like: “beautiful images” or “sweet.” I’m very impressed.

    Like others, I saw two levels here: 1) where the Passion was related to a kind of spiritual connection between human and G-d, and 2) where lovers collide. Beautiful both ways. 🙂

    • Kitt Crescendo says:

      Thanks, Renee! I’ve always felt that there is a spirituality in the connection between lovers who have more than just a physical connection… When they come together with such commitment, their joining is as much a celebration of that connection to their creator as it is to each other. 🙂

    Very moving and flows quite nicely.
    On a separate note…my one year anniversary of starting my blog here is June 16 so it’s coming up. I posted just any photo of a gator only to get it started. That post received a grand total of one Like, from you.
    Thanks for being there.
    😎 😀

    The rhythm reminds me of a flowing river, which is exactly appropriate for the poem. I also love the strong verbs that invoke such sensory images – Breathe me, Feed me, Hold me, Help me, Guide me . . . . I’d love to hear this set to music.
