I’ve tasted your hunger
felt it burn through your skin
as fingers start to trace
a path where the embers lay
the kindling starts to burn
as night slowly sets in
here we are shadows
here we blend with the night
yet there is still the fire
wrestling between the sheets
hidden yet burning, blazing
like ripples, turning to waves
as the fire dies down
hunger already satiated
under the sheets we lie
tangled our limbs remained

Burn this screaming soul
along with the darkness and the light
let the flames rise and consume
flesh enveloped in scars of time
Strip away forgotten sins
remove the lies from this weakend spirit
disperse the doubts and fears
find the innocence within

chained to stone cold walls
afraid to roam once more
over lush valleys
and sacred mountains
for fear it will hurt them all
it found love before
that rapturous bliss
breaking all the rules
just to be with the one
that warms its winter heart
but the fire once stoked
shall brightly blaze
it’s heat ready to consume
and burn earthbound flesh
leaving nothing but ashes in its wake
and as the fiery inferno died down
all it once loved was gone
everything razed to the ground
and of the one it desired
just a flash of memory remained
oh how it raged and roared
for love was denied once more
a curse it was the fire within
when cold heart is warmed
hell is there lying in wait
and so it turned to the shadows
and the embrace of the forbidding tower
afraid to spread its wings
to take its freedom to the skies
and seek another heart to love
yet isolation it cannot bear
stealing damsels here and there
leading seeking knights to cross
its home, the tower strong
to see if love will come knocking at its door
but none has stood its test of fire
their screams echoing well into the night
as their flesh bound to metal light up the sky
just because love came to life inside
and so they burn before her eyes

Where’s the light that once showed me the way,
the path leading to your embrace?
The stars are gone and the moon’s asleep,
where o’ where are you my lighthouse dear?
Where’s the light that comes from deep within?
only darkness ensues, you melt with the shadows.
How can I find the door to your heart,
when you blend with the night, leaving my sight?
Where’s the light that you used to hold,
the one that draws me deeper into you?
Can it be that you’ve doused the fire that burns,
leaving me with nothing but an empty lighthouse?

Now the flames shall burn as night closes in,
you’re the light that ignites the fuel
that courses through these veins.
Tell me now if you’re ready to play with fire,
strike the match, we’re gonna dance tonight,
between the tongues of flame that lick our skin,
our sweat covered bodies will seek each other out.
And as the fire we’ve conjured with each searing kiss,
rise up to bring down the heaven to its knees,
we shall swim in the depths of our desires,
until we find release as we look into each others eyes.

Wake the dying embers within
stoke the fire let it burn
with your hands running over
aching flesh that waits.
Burn the night with your searing kiss,
let your love dazzle me,
we’ll play with fire fit for our desires,
let it swallow us, consume us,
melt us until we are nothing yet be everything.
And in the circle of our arms we’ll lie still and spent,
until the embers slowly die down,
to be woken when passion burns once more.
I will feed you to the fire,
the flames that burn inside my heart.
You will be its food,
the one it will consume for eternity.
The heat will penetrate you,
yet the flames will leave you unmarked,
for my heart will not have you harmed, no
for you are loved above and beyond.
