“Hearth” By Robin Chappell

Do not ignite my fire only to let it burn out

Singe my heart with your truth

Enlighten me again on what your flame is about

I’ve extinguished every doubt and I’ve taken all the heat

You gently warm my heart with your beautiful smile

Comfort me with every fervent word you choose to speak

The sparks we created long ago burst into the brightness of a bonfire

Keeping a glow upon my face I never want to retire

So do not ignite my flame only to let it burn out

Engulf me until I feel it from the inside

Until you make my entire body shout

My passion will need to remain kindled

Tending to the embers in the hearth of our love

Fuel them before they begin to dwindle

Watching it die out like the stars burning from above

Do not ignite my flame only to let it burn out

Let the flicker remain the same reason that you came

Let it sting the world like fireballs from your mouth

Raining new light into the darkness of their brains

I stare at you. You stare at me.

Leaning in towards each other slowly

I intuitively draw you into my mind

As your soft full lips finally meet mine

I feel tingling sensations traveling down my spine

The rest of the world is disappearing

I am growing more and more consumed in the comfort of your time

Lightly I suck in your bottom lip

Passion dripping thick as you do the same

The intertwining of your lips amazes me

Beautiful in every small way

Inviting the warmth and wetness of your tongue

Just begging for me to stay

Sweeter than honey dripped from scones

Your large hands all over my body begin to roam

Never knew moments as right as this could ever exist

We could go on like this forever if reality never through a plot twist

As we refrain you plant smaller kisses across my face

A look of satisfaction as you notice my pink lipstick has been erased

I finally welcomed you into my world willingly

Now I am elated with everything you’ve shown me

I stare at you. You stare at me
