FF: The Flame

PHOTO PROMPT © J Hardy Carroll


in your eyes
i see
burning coals
smoldering yearning to
spring to life.

what would happen if-
but we can’t-
but we can,
we must,

We will.

other loves, other forms,
other lives
recede into the


take me as
I am.
tongues of fire burn
coals not consumed by heat,
hearts pulsing to one beat
yearning to be
you, as one, with me.
