The Dying Fire

Love started a whisper, an ember burning slow

 Skin touched softly, hearts entwined, tangled souls

Passions flames spread tearing across their world

Love raged

Its frenzy slowly dwindled a rampant crashing sea gave way to an ocean serene

Calmly the fire burns steady

Passion lost within time

He longs for her touch, for the passion in her eyes

Wanting to cry like a child at her bosom for something loved and lost, he lies awake at night

Tears are in his eyes

He fears he has failed her

He fears her fire is dying
