From across the world I invited you

Secrets behind my eyes beckoned

Banked to embers for too long

I dared you to touch my fire

You need only to answer my wild call

Movements akin to a predator

The world disappears around you

Skin tingling with your heat

You draw closer I consider flight

You reach to capture me in your arms

Setting me blazing across night skies

Valentine, 22.November.2014


  1. Your light shone as you set alight the blaze of desire as you flew into your verse of love.. 🙂 Always love your poetic verses Val… You hold such talent.. you really do xxx

    • Oh, Sue thank you. These poems, sometimes they are such a part of me, sometimes I have a hard time hitting that ‘publish’ button and sending them out there. I don’t know why. Then others read and tell me they love them, it makes me happy I got over my need to hold them.

  2. Aah, I read flight as in the escape considered, and the soaring in ecstasy!! 🙂 Very beautiful and sensual Valentine.

  3. I’m reminded of a Bad Company song when reading this. “Don’t you know that you are a shooting star.” I like that you thought flight, but stayed. Sounds like that was the right choice.

    • These poems, they are simply ‘flights’ of fantasy Mark. Right now, they are simply my heart and mind pouring out on the page. Likely the compilation of many years of many things.

      I am always hopeful I learn and grow and these represent me.

  4. “Setting me blazing across night skies.” Like a comet or a shooting star. Val, you infuse your poetry with such passion!

  5. As always, your poem is evocative. ❤ ❤ ❤
    I like your choice of picture as well.

  7. Thank you for this lovely poem, Valentine. And, IMO, this image you picked is perfect. Or, was it the other way around?
