Love or Lust?
By: Amy M. Kennedy

You set my soul on fire and my heart too
So completely lost and captivated by the sweetness of you
Two shadows we are, dancing underneath the light of the moon
Our time together always escapes too soon
Feeling your lips on mine, and the heat of our touch
The silence between us says so much
Forever I want you to stay, never to depart
Not only do you have my body, but my soul and my heart
Your smile lights up my world and makes me feel alive and free
You make me hope, wish and dream..make me want to believe
Hours pass by, and still here we are making love, laughing,and talking, I don't question to ask why
Content, I stare into your beautiful eyes as I let out a sigh
Making me feel like no one ever has, i close my eyes and pray
I wish upon a star, that you aren't a dream and are here to stay
But if tomorrow you must leave, I am still thankful for today
And this moment in time I shall cherish for all the rest of my days
I question whether its love or lust, this feeling that I feel
The hot flames of passion between us...that only you can heal
Love or lust...your desire drives me crazy, our passion heats the night
The flame grows between us, burning hot and radiantly bright
Love or lust, that is the question that weights heavily on my mind
I suppose time is the only answer...the ultimate sign.




 ~Live today as though it were your last but prepare for tomorrow as though it were here~

Again, WOW. . . where is all this coming from?  Has the spring and the sudden rise in temprature brought itself to Passions?  And if so, I like it!!!

Amy, this is a terrific poem, really cool to see this side of you. . . hope that you can keep these feelings. . .

Great poem!!

Beautiful words and a lovely verse Amy.  The desire and passions felt through your words are powerful.  If 'tis lust and not true love ... it is still a wonderful ride!

Wonderful and romantic...I believe lust and love are so intricately interwoven at times that it is indeed hard to distinquish between the two.  When I find someone special I hope it will not be lust without the love...I hope it is love and lust.  James

Amy,
I agree - there are such blurred lines between love and lust, but it is so very possible to have both.  If this poem is reality, may you find that to be true.

Beautiful Amy  thanks for sharing.
Love/Lust   are very much the same
and you are so right -- should it be
love -- it will continue to grow -
If it is lust ----then with time it
dwindles

Aimster I LUV THIS ONE .. this has a beat that seems to reach out to me.  Love or Lust whichever or both .. perhaps with a thread they are woven together as a mutual desire.
