I burn
like a candle
deep inside
I'm yearning
never wanting to die
flame flickers
never losing control.
never letting go
Warm and deep
inside my soul.
like a river
of fire
you course
inside my veins
letting go
what remains.
So gentle
is your smile
your tenderness
melting my heart;
I cannot recall
how or when
with you,
I've been
from the start.

"Burning Up" is a lamp of desires nourish with oils of life scented by

Cupid with aroma of satisfaction to please Frigg. It is a lamp that

keeps its light on blinking to keep alive the reason of living. It can't stop

its oils from burning for desires must be fulfilled and the only thing to be

recalled is pleasure for it brings energy to keep its flame on.

“Burning Up” delivers its message from the first to the last line.

I have enjoyed a pleasant and striking reading.
