Release From Passion's Flames

A touch...soft and tender
A whisper...full of desire
A gasp...of sweet surrender
As passion fuels the fire

No words...spoken between them
No promises...to be kept
No lies...being told tonight
No looking back...no regrets

Longing to hold each other
Such precious little time
Both vowed to another
Being lonely their only crime

Tomorrow bringing sorrow
A brief moment of shame
With the memory of this one night
A release from passion's flames



 I lie awake in a world filled with dreams,
but dreams can be so real when you don't know you're asleep

Well sir, of course my first impression was of a NC. country honky tonk.  Then upon my reread I realized it was just my fantasy!
Well no matter, It was a very good decription of a one night stand.

Very beautifully expressed
I like it when a man expresses passion in his poetry, especially when it's well done

I can't say that passion without commitment appeals to me. I guess I'm old fashoned... but I still enjoyed the poem. Good job.

Jeffrey, this is good.
When I grew up I was told never to use
the word "I" in a poem -----
so though I write them with the word
'I' many times -- I do enjoy reading
one so much without it being so personal.

OH my passion is flying ----have always
wondered what a one night stand would
be like - how one would feel in the morning

This is good and very well written.

Jeff,
   I think everyone knows the pangs of love unattainable. The sorrow that coms with trying to attain it is immense and you captured it very well.

This apparently slipped by me a couple of times, but I finally caught it...and if this is the "other side" of you, Jeff, then it is certainly your better side...
