The Fire Within

The Fire Within

An electric shock
Caused my body to quiver
His touch had made me shiver

An Involuntary reaction
To this unplanned meeting
A coincidence worth repeating

The fire began to burn within me
Hoping it was in him too
I was feeling quite the shrew

Igniting each other’s flame
Was it the start of something special
Or could he turn out to be the devil

We won’t know unless we perform
The traditional mating dance
Oh please just let me have a chance

    Was it the start of something special
    Or could he turn out to be the devil

    I suppose each of us may encounter both along the way. What counts is the ability to see the difference and not get burnt. Thanks for joining in.

    perhaps a “chance” is something that should be re-examined if she can’t figure out if he’s the devil…

    very intrigued by your last line, the shrew resorted to pleading, i felt a little lack of confidence when it came to the final moments. good play of words Christine

      Yes you are correct Gina She felt like the shrew but perhaps never was. She was insecure and longing 💕

    I’m glad that these days you can at least try it out a before you tie the knots… imagine being stuck with a devil.

      Sometimes they are in disguise until way after the tying of knot! 😑
