Poetry by Luke

Old Flame


Talking at dinner of nothing much.

With a whispered word, a feather’s brush

Their passion ignites at a simple touch.

Her face lights up with a molten flush

As feelings of yore unbidden arise.

Suffusing radiance as from the sun

Emboldens the flames within her eyes

Till the old warmth engulfs them; they are at one.


Skin tingling from a rush of fresh blood

Her spine arches outlining the curve of a thigh

The candle flickers, accenting a breast

A wave crashes over them, preceding the flood.

Wave follows wave, until with a sigh,

They both recline, at peace, at rest.
