Consume Me


Blaze

Devour me

Like the flames lick the tossed sticks of wood in the glowing corner of the darkened room.

Piece by piece I will become a part of you –

fueling you – taunting you – wanting you – wanting you.

Take me apart, put me back together,

infuse my soul with laughter

with tears

with love

with fear.  

with hope

with dreams .

The more I am renewed

the more I will disappear in you. 

All my yearnings point me to you –

all my longings –

my entire being aches to hold you in me and be held.

Heal me

Every kiss

each stroke

will bring life and love and wholeness….
