Fire of Desire, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz


Fire of DesireChez le Pere Lathuille, Edouard Manet (1878)

Fire of Desire

Would have preferred giving another rose
Not of yellow but of the brightest red
Symbol of what my heart really shows
To speak softly words I have never said

With little effort my heart you did steal
Excitement you created from the start
A feeling inside that is so real
To carry great love for you in my heart

Pray that there is no need to hesitate
To shower you with my eager passion
I am burning with love and cannot wait
Compressed within more heat than any sun

This inferno your beauty did ignite
Will consume me to wait another night
