did I ruffle those perfect feathers of yours, darling ?
no love, you just tickled the fire in my soul
and how does the blaze feel under your skin, does it burn ?
no, I bathe in it, like in a summer’s dream
it does not scorch your soft lips ?
it never does, it never will
but it must hurt you when your body is ignited by flames... it must
no, you are my flames and there is no other way I will have it
you must see reason here
the only reason I see is me against you, so say no more
yet. . .
no, my love, enough! no words! why do you question my reason, why do you doubt my words? have I not shown you how my body trembles under your faintest touch?
how my soul bursts into flames and how my heart threatens to jump out of my chest? how each fiber of my being, screams for more of you?
I know all of those things
and yet you doubt
I fear for you
you should not, I am perfectly at ease
and if there is harm ?
there will be none
but if so ?
then I will burst into flames, I will fall to ashes and then rise from them like a Phoenix, a fearless creature that always flies... just burn with me, my love... no more questions asked
this love that we share, always so complex and painful by its ends, yet you hold the truth, my dear, you always do
then we shall burn together ?
we always have, and we always will
no more words between us ?
no, just our hot breaths and nothing else
nothing else, never again
