Desire

The battle ensued
Between combatants heart and mind
As loneliness whispered softly
Of tenderness
In cooing song and rhyme

The brain issued a stern warning
Of heartache and the tears of sorrow
The turmoil of the soul
And the price
The wrath of storms coming

Love ignored words of caution
With little thought of consequence
Forging fearlessly and foolishly ahead
Igniting a small spark
Scented smoke trails in the night
Long ago thought dead

Glowing orange green flickering embers
Soon a smoldering burning fire
Did awaken from memories long sleep
The emotion
Desire
