Spread the love

You’re fire 
and sometimes ice
Oh, touch engraved
on unassuming skin. 

Desire burns
and it’s hard
to distinguish lone

Your words pierce
as ice,
while gaze warms
as fire.

yet towards want 
does my heart aspire.

  1. Yes dear Sanaa – the irresistibility of desire works right across the spectrum – once snared, delight dances whatever, savouring the prospect of delicious surrender… Again love the vitality in your work…
