A fiery passion until death, and past.
Enduring Flames

At seventeen, you caught my eye
My ardor burst in flame.
I wooed and won, you with a sigh,
Ignited just the same.

My soul is kindled by your smile
Sad heart singed by your tears.
Some loves run hot, then cold a while,
Ours more than burns - it sears.

The glowing embers of our nights
Light up the days between
Hot passion every glance incites
Lust sparks against the screen.

But what cold future lies ahead,
A passion doused by time?
Fear not, we'll burn 'till we are dead
In ashes we'll recline.
