Flames of chemistry so instantly ignited
Can just as readily be extinguished.
Once the prize has been won
The pleasurable deed well and truly done
A flicker of reality will see those flames diminished.
Is it so arduous a task
To indulge in a heated moment
And have it last
Than a disposable emotion?
To be present
Ardently rapt in divine
Intimate touch, lovers’ potion.
Not wind up empty
Cast off casually
Swallowed by immensity of the ocean.
A sinking yet floating corazón
Adrift without thought
Dissolving into the unknown.
Significance given to the senseless
Negating value for the significant
Out of fear, conceit and detachment
Forgoing beauty in chemistry and emotions spent.
