Poem: Keep the Fire Burning

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Keep the fire burning is about him taking her love for granted. He believes there is no need to try as hard since she is with him but her passion fades away from a love half-lit. Realizing this, he keeps the fire burning pulling out all the stakes like the good old days wanting her more each day.

"Keep the Fire Burning"

He lets the embers cool,
believing there is no need
to keep the flames burning hot,
thinking he can ignite a spark
whenever he desires.

Confused by him
taking her love for granted,
assuming she is satisfied
with a love half-lit,
her passion fades away.

Lost in his illusion,
finding her no longer interested
with her body cold like a dead fish,
he changes his tune
pulling out all the stakes,
like the good old days.

Keeping the fire burning hot,
no longer letting her passion fade,
tasting her sweet lips,
feeling her excitement
touching each particle of his body,
wanting her more each day.
