Putting Out Fire With Gasoline
Look into the eyes of fire
tell me what you see
is it your very heart's desire
or are you just blind to me
Try to feel the fire's burn
let it engulf your heart and soul
expression's oh so taciturn
are you losing all control
Sweep away the guilt of sex
what you did, is what you did
emotions so deliciously complex
will retribution be your bid
You think you're still who are you
not just another, who was violated
what are you really going to do
when self control is annihilated
This fire that was started here
is an all consuming force
you waited so long....forget fear
inborn feelings you can't divorce
In these eyes, you sought release
from all that you've become
no worries, no tears, no peace
an impossible concept, for some
Look into the depths of passion
and read the lines, between
for trying to deny your base desire
is like putting out fire with gasoline
Author's Notes:
Somewhat allegorical, but completely true.

Passion is a vital and wonderful part of life, and it is sad that someone would deny sharing themselves with

someone they love if the love is mutual and there is respect between them. I like that phrase 'like putting out fire with gasoline.'
