"caught in the vortex of desires, those fires within that consumed the dross of dawn"
Like water for chocolate,

the stars winked out that night;
the energies of the universe
caught in the vortex of desires,
those fires within
that consume the dross of dawn
and the set of suns,
brought all to a zenith
bright as fission,
far reaching visions of what I dreamed
before I met you.

From afar I'd seen the smoke
wondering where was the fire. Lord,
where was the flame of my desire?

For where there were embers,
there hid my hope.
