By Dreamless

I lie in wait

for just a thought;

just a spark

of me to cross your

crowded, clouded mind

For an hour, a minute, a second

I want to light a fire in your soul

That ignites the sheets

and sets your imagination ablaze

When you're exhausted

and the inferno dies out --

While you're smoldering and finally

you are...


I can die happily,

choking on the smoke from you burning

for me.

    I find your stupid emotional shit (thoughts) to be sexy. Great piece, from open to end... And I particularly loved the final stanza. I love genuine pieces that come from personal experience through life's unfair circumstances. ...exhales the charred ashes... -Smiles&Hugs Scholar
