Scalded

 

Scalded

~

 

Never again the fire burned

 

when in desperate act deep inside

 

I searched for the ultimate pleasure

 

on sun heated flesh unsatisfied

 

with casual kisses-

 

And a path scorched in memories

 

remains, desires turned

 

into restless dreams of you-

 

I’ll cross over to places unknown

 

in eternity where your skin

 

calls my name, if now gone

 

your fire still burns the same.

    Unrequited, unattainable love…..it’s a scorcher. Never again? That’s a long time to carry a torch.

    You know Som. If there be any up side to these scalds, scars, burns and at sometime or other a wide open bleeding wound. I have to say they make for deep felt inspirations. And you tap into that and relay it with the best of ‘em H.O. This is one Bird that’s glad to know ya.

    I like your poem. You write well. I went through this with this guy. He really broke my heart.
