Settle Into Me

It’s not just the warmth
Of the fireplace,

Adding to the romance
Of the moment…

A kaleidoscope of
Oranges,
Reds,
Ambers…

Dance from the embers,
Splashing faint rouge on
The walls of the
Darkened room,

Scintillations
Of energy building
A heat in us,
Glimmers exposing
A need,
Tonight,

Curled up,
Together
On this sofa.

It’s not just the crack,
Pop,
Hiss of the wood,
Converting to flame,

But a symphony
Of natural beauty
Orchestrating our touch.

Now,
My love,

Is our time.

Blend your spirit
With mine.

Consume the dancing light…
Your eyes,
With my eyes,
So focused
On our forever.

Draw our bodies,
All the more tightly
To union,
That lasts our lifetime.

Drink in the love,
Our love.

Settle into this glorious night,

Settle into the radiance of the fire,

Settle into slow-burning sensuality,

Settle into…

Me.

  1. It’s really a very beautiful poem, the choice of words is commendable! Also the imagery of fire 🔥 and warmth. The description of snuggling on sofa besides warm fire in winters is so comforting. 5 stars for this ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    1. Thank you Tanya!! I just love the picture of that in my mind…and after snow, and ice here in DC over the past two days…I was all the more infatuated.

      Sigh…

      1. yes I agree, but the cold does help with creating that cosy feel, but when we are with that special person, their presence is all the heat and warmth inside and around us. that is the lovely feeling I get from reading your poem here.

    1. So many thanks Jamie…and that is exactly the picture in my mind. I guess it was the premature snow and ice this week that crafted the notion.

      I can only write what I feel.

      Dammit!!!

      1. haha! I was brought up old school! I think that’s a beautiful picture of the perfect kind of evening! So many people nowadays don’t appreciate something simple as enjoying a quiet night in front of the fireplace, or sitting on a beach watching the sunset. Sometimes those simple moments are the most memorable. So I say GO ROGUE!!! 🙂

      3. Lol! See now you’re just encouraging my craziness! That’s never good for anyone! 😁

        I’m happy you enjoy my rogue behavior, Bill, and even more humbled that you see it as something good! Thank you for such kind words, my friend. I truly appreciate it. 🙂

      4. My pleasure, my friend.

        But…do I also count as being “rogue”?

        I’m too staid, I believe, but that’s okay.

        I can only aspire to being in that same creative, artsy, edgy, world as you.

        So for now, know that I live vicariously, and with a great sense of honor, within your shadow.

        You, my friend…

        ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        Your friendship adds some many smiles to my life.

      7. LOL!!! You’re killing me!!!! 😆
        Okay, okay… the foil hat thing was my idea, BUT… What you do with your foil hat in the privacy of your home is your business, dude! 😁

        You are amazing, Bill! Never stop being that! Enjoy your Friday evening! We made it! Stay warm and toasty… don’t get too close to the fire place with that foil hat though. It holds heat you know. LOL 😂
