Matchstick Heart

I love the beach...

Smoldering heart
The flame long gone
Comes near to a fire
To flame anew
Does your heart still smolder
Though cold of love
And will nearing my heat
Rekindle passion in you?

They say to never try to explain your poetry – if people don’t get it, then change it ;)  I just want to make one quick comment in case it isn’t clear.

Have you ever blown out a match and then held it above a still lit match?  Even though the flame never touches the smoldering match, it bursts into flame.  In a child’s eyes it looks almost like magic.

OK, so a slightly longer comment.

      I agree, but I was thinking of those times when you see, think of, or whatever, a long lost love and your heart thumps a little louder and a little faster. Not necessarily saying it is a good idea to go off and chase that long lost love, but sometimes just having that feeling again, even if just for a moment, is enough…
