all lit up

all lit up again last night

engulfed in my desires

pushed by passion past the point

at which a body tires


what foolish inspiration

surprises me to this

presuming something less

might follow from your kiss


patience breeds not caution

but feeds the hungry flame

embers too long smoldered

spark fires far less tame


such temperatures as reach

the flashpoint of the soul

through feverous consumption

can often burn one whole


this burning is like everything

there’s danger uncontrolled

but my heart so craves the fire

it seems easier to hold
