Warm bright flames


The warm bright flames from the open fire
Light up your flesh as you sit by me
I never thought we would last this long
Thought we'd part to sing our own song

There's something pure about our love
You don't moan at my shapeless clothes
I'm happy you have girl's night out
With friends from work to twist and shout

I think you're an angel in disguise
You cuddle, whisper "I feel safe"
Twice we had thought about a change
We both thought that would be quite strange

We don't cheat for we trust each other
No, we don't wear each other out
Yes, we allow freedom that's true
But we will never say adieu

  5. Lovely to feel so safe with another person. I only feel that way with dogs. Smiles. I enjoy your love poems as they give me a glimpse into the kind of love i once dreamed of.

  6. I love their relationship. It's wonderful to be able to have a partner and be free to be ourselves at the same time. The alternative creates all sorts of trouble and unhappiness.
