Burn In Love Tonight ( A Poem By James J )

My soul is on fire with desire

My scars are burning as your lips press against my chest 

The chains that have held me prisoner for so long

Are being unlocked and unwound 

 

I can feel your breath all over me 

Filling me with a rush of passion 

I could hold you in my arms 

for infinity

 

I envy the hearts that you’ve adored before me 

You could tear me apart, piece by piece 

You could give me a thousand scars more

And they would be my favorite tattoos 

 

Our bodies touch as our eyes hold our fears 

Your heart is safe with me love

I will protect you and adore you  

We can burn in love tonight  

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sanctity ( A Poem By James J )

Your hands open like flowers

Your eyes flutter like the breeze

Your hair sways like the leaves

Your mouth moves like the tide 

 

My heart is made of stone

My feet are rooted in the ground

My arms are bound by vines

My head is filled with mud

 

From the cracks in my heart flowers grow

From the roots in my feet the wind moves me

From the vines on my arms your leaves dance

From the tide of your lips the mud is washed away

Desires ( A Poem By James J )

i stand upon the edge of the earth

looking out upon infinity

my desires are to be free

but a soul bound by desires cannot be free

 

i scream but no sound is heard

for i am a ripple in the strumming of chords

a leaf floating in the winds of time

pushing me towards my destiny

 

beauty surrounds me as i open my eyes

my lungs are filled with the seduction of air

sunlight glimmers off this canvas of land

and spreads over this endless earth

 

beauty is but a flicker in the candle of life

it is eventually extinguished and replaced

darkness uncloaks itself and poses as fear

fear drives us to spill blood for beliefs

 

salvation is preached but not understood

for death does not require salvation

death only requires us in the end

but it is in death that we find beauty

 

the beauty of life is that it does not last forever

immortality would veil us in darkness

for a life lived bound by endless desires

is a life in which we would never be set free
