Torch Song

Let the music draw us in

As we begin to sway as one

Pressed against each other

Feeling the heat rise

Wanting so much more

Than a simple dance can give

There is passion in the air tonight

And we know just how to capture it

The song’s end is only the beginning

As we succumb to the fire within

Inferno Untamed

Your arms around me
My legs around you 
Drawn together
Like magnets to steel
We are unable to part
Passion controls us
Enslaves us
Until we are united
One heartbeat
One pulse
Breathing as one...

     A fire breathing dragon
     Consuming all in its path
     Taking all the treasures of life
     To hold forever as its spoils
     Guarding against hatred
     And fiercely protecting
     All it holds dear
     Soaring to heights
     Greater than we can see
     And diving and twirling in the air until

the dragon sleeps now

I am back at your door

It is time to cash in

To redeem this coupon

You once gave to me

Good for one night

Of unbridled passions

You gave it to me years ago

When we were young

And bursting with love

But there is no expiration

And it is not null and void

So can I hold you tonight

Can we recapture

What we once had

Rekindle the flames

That once burned bright

Please step back in time with me

Because I have loved you endlessly

Take this coupon and love me tonight

Let Me

Let me be

Covered in your love

Embrace the

Scared child in me


Let me be

Drowned in your passions

Comfort the

Weary woman I am


Let me be

Renewed with hope

Encourage the

Dreams I hold dear


Let me be

Covered in your love

Take the

Fears away from me


Let me be

He Knows


Softly he brushes

The hair off her cheek

He tells her she is beautiful

And gently gives her a kiss

He knows the moment it happens

Her eyes give her away

The kiss ignites her passion

And she draws him back in

This time a deeper kiss

And he knows she wants him

But he lets her take the lead

Moving nice and slowly

Their bodies mingle

Intertwined as one

Her breath matching his

There hearts sharing a rhythm

And finally their passion is spent

Leaving the two of them

Empty of energy but

Blissful in their exhaustion

They fall asleep in each other’s arms

Love At A Distance

You turn to me to kiss me

And hold me in your arms

Passions burn brightly

We become consumed

Left basking in the glow

Of love in the afternoon

Alas it’s just a fantasy

That someday you’ll be mine

And dreams are all it will ever be

As you kiss your wife

Loving her endlessly

Without a thought for me

Fandango’s Friday Flashback – October 11th

This week I am back and only about an hour late for my time zone, but since Fandango is in California it is still technically Friday there and I am not late.  Regardless this is my FFF.

This post was originally posted on October 11th of 2017 here.  It seems like so much longer ago than two years, but I remember writing this one.  So now I share with you…

Unbridled Desire

What was I thinking?

That I could tame you?

That I had a chance

To capture your love?

To harness that emotion

That has always run wild?

They were pointless dreams

Filled with you and I

That only made me hope

I could subdue that spirit within

That drove me to love you.

It is time to wake up

And just enjoy the fact

I saw that natural passion at play.



Slowly you let out a sigh

You are very content

And so am I

My head on your chest

I listen to your heart beat slow

Nude bodies glisten

Caught in the midday sun

You stroke my back

And I shiver a little

You hold me tight

And we both laugh a little

You turn to kiss me

And I respond to you

The next thing you know

We are back

In the throes of passion

Still hungry for more.

Look Away

His hands were rough

From a life of hard living

But there was something about them

I couldn’t look away.

His hands were strong

And keeping busy

They mesmerized me

So I couldn’t look away.

They were tanned

Wearing an onyx ring

No signs of a wedding band

And I couldn’t look away.

They showed a gentleness

And sense of purpose

With a slow deliberate way

But I couldn’t look away.


…if only he would touch me once

With hands that know passion

To quench this obsessive desire

Then maybe I could look away.
