The Passion Of Life

Poem By Rhonda Davis

One taste of the sweet nectar of passion and like an alcoholic the need to drink will once again overwhelm all reality.
To taste the sweetness of life upon the tongue, swishing gently around the mouth like fine wine.
The aroma and fullness like a kiss placed fresh upon a virgin's lips.
The burning deep within the body as it hits the core like a furnace stoked high in winter,
releasing water droplets dripping to cool the inferno.
Fire's heat that swelters through forming pools as rising steam as the sweat of skin on skin builds and drips.
A heart of fire burns with raging rapids thrown into the pool of human need.
Drenched in the waterfall's depths until the lungs need to fill with the lingering mist left from the fire.
Passion smolders in the essence of the kiss, until the need to drink comes again.

Comments about The Passion Of Life

Ah! Optimism. A celebration of an act of love. This is something very few people would be capable of doing. There is a certain ambiguity in it, in that one wonders what is measnt by the last line; is alcohol (or any other substance for that matter) a substitue or a way of the narrator cutting themselves off from that which they are missing? Is it a metaphor or just a simple need? Love Denis Joe

Be My Lover On The Side

I want you to be my lover.
Not my partner but my lover.
That person I meet on the side.
The one who is secret and no one else knows even when others are around.

Tell Me

The day eases in and out so quietly.
Time passes and never a moment goes away
that I do not think about you.
Your ghost and essence are always playing


To be able to know that finally I have someone who will stand
by my side and give as much as I would is the best feeling in the world.
When I hold your hand I can feel the power of the universe in one place.
When I feel your gentle sweet caresses I know whatever life brings I can withstand the gale.

Matthew's Song

Sleep my little one.
Close your eyes.

Fire's Delight

The fire burns with the heat of a single warm coal.
It lies against the others, but only gives the warmth that it can.
Against the fire's glowing inferno burning brighter and brighter as the ashes are burnt off from the fuel of the heat.
Transference of energy first cold then moving into heat the swell of the fury once more.
