Quiet Roar

It burns her underneath,

where no one else can see.

Bearing the heat of smoking desire

the flames rise and flicker.

Love’s fire,

first stoked and then singeing.

Ashes fall of what will be.

A desperate reach of her soul,

hands idle at her side.

She waits, she can see

the same quiet roar in his eyes.



I’ve chosen to make this a submission to dVerse Poets Pub meeting at the bar.  The topic was temptation and I couldn’t resist.  Should be some great poetry on submitted today!

    oo la la…yeah it does begin where no one else sees and we tend to believe no one else will see it when we give in to temptation but then again it usually finds its way out…

    Sounds like mutual temptation and a lot of ‘heat.’
