The Flame of Desire

When you’re single
And looking for that one someone
Or just in need of release
There are moments
When that need
That hunger
Becomes a kind of panic
That rises through you

Like a tide lapping at the shore
Gradually moving farther
And farther up the beach
The waves increasing in strength incrementally
So that you don’t notice the subtle changes
Until the waves are pounding
And threatening to pull you out to sea
Drowning you in your own desire

But when you have found
That special someone
Who lights a fire in your soul
And who just the thought of
Makes sparks dance in your eyes
And a smile creep over your countenance
Then that desire is a fire
Incapable of being doused by the tide
