Man Discovers Fire
You are my sustaining and living fire.
I warm my hands at your smile.
My muscles are melted with your touch.
I drink in tonic heated by your laughter.
Fearsome creatures stay from me
Because of your brightness.
Friends come near to me
Because of your glow.
You are the heat of my passion.
The embers of my comfort.
You ignite in my loin
And simmer in my soul.

Ah, the love poems of Susan Patterson! Perhaps this one is a tad smulchy and over stated...perhaps not. If the shoe fits, as they say, wear it. skp
