Flame Of Love - Poem by John Carter Brown

Flame of love come near me
And let me feel the heat
Let me glide above the ground
Instead of on my feet;

Tell me all your secrets
And blaze within my heart
Then my dearest love and I
May never be apart;

For I am no great lover
And cannot crack the code
So bear me up and teach me
And lift my heavy load;

But if my plea is wasted
And life's too much to handle
I'll have to pop out to the shop
And buy myself a candle.

    A lovely romantic poem well articulated and subtly penned to capture the bliss of love in the inner recesses of the heart. I concur with the conviction of the poet. A nice piece of poetry. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply

    Well, you got me again. I start reading this intense love poem, and I end up laughing. I guess that's good. You're teaching me not to be so serious. I loved the poem. (Report) Reply
