Take me back before the burn
When fire warmed
More than skin
Soul’s together slowly churned
In perfect union out and in
A place each mortal seeks and yearns
Take me back before the burn


Dversepoets.com challenge is to write an erotic poem. Not used to this, but want to add my efforts. I think we all look for perfect eros, the way it was intended.

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.
