Wow, it’s already May! The older I get, the faster time seems to go by. I have so much going on in this season of my life and I’m trying hard to keep up with it all. I’m in the middle of writing my 2nd poetry book (my first one is called The Book of Mysteries). Along the way, I’ll be sharing a few selections from the second book. It’s a book about love; its different stages and faces.
Today’s poem is about an experience I had with intense physical chemistry:
Some days when I walk into your space
You’re smoldering like embers
And I’m kindling for the fire.
The winds pick up
Sparks crackle between us
The temperature inches towards boiling point.
But because I love you
And you honor me
We choose not to light this fire today.
We choose to rein in our passions
Until the covenant is sealed.
For a fire contained
Will warm us and our children
But a fire that rages
Will raze our house to the ground.
