This flame attracts me
like bees to honey.
I can’t help but smile
at the smile that swells up
at the thought of this flame.
With muscles so strong and turgid,
I can’t help but fantasise and daydream too… if you may
at what it would feel like under my caress…
It draws me.
No! I will not succumb
to this handsome dancing flame.
I will not falter,no,I will be strong in my resolve
to feel from afar without lust,
but awe at God’s awesomeness…
I refuse to be BURNT!
