The Dictionary Said:
“A strong amorous feeling or desire.”
I read what the word passion meant.
 
My lover at the
Heat of the moment said:
“Nothing.”
The fire between us
Burned up all the words.
The devil’s scepter ignited the torch.
Words became charred fragments.
They came to me through my groin.
They sucked my reasoning out of me.
I was a rag doll enjoying the ride.
I was the devil’s advocate
And a herald of the angels,
All at the same time.
I twisted up passion and reasoning,
Holy and diabolic,
And sifted it through my throbbing fingers.
I ran naked through the fields shouting,
“I’m on fire. How glorious is thy flame!”
I danced to a clap of thunder.
I frolicked in the heat
Of a lightning bolt.
My insides came outside of me.
They led me to her creamy gates.
I plowed into her like a savage.
The beast in me talked to my spirit.
The wild grizzlies fled from me.
I exploded like a convulsive volcano.
I lay exhausted on the twisted bed.
Then I reverted back to the calm.
I learned how passion felt from her.

Blessed is the person who lights us on fire this way and makes us feel the wild grizzly passion. Robert, you must have had quite a muse visiting you :-)

Thanx Nelson. I have a juicier version of this, but I was afraid to put it in here.

Sounds like when I was in my youth decades ago!

One thing is for sure without a shred of doubt: creamy gate can not be faked. She’s all yours to enter!

Love this one. Thanks Robert.
