Passion Fire

A hot little poem about one of my “first times” ๐Ÿ˜‰ — photo included.

Passion Fire


I will not forget you
my memory still burns
with tearful recollection

remembrance of the first time
my eyes fell upon your
luscious curves

skin smooth as satin
aglow in golden orange
as you lay before me

seductive in the summer sunset

you torched my imagination
ignited my spirit
fired my soul

I wanted you so badly
to fondle you with fingertips
caress you with trembling lips

you promised such sweetness

but Iรขโ‚ฌโ„ขd been warned

by others who had dared partake
of your fiery charms
that it would end in tears

but I did not heed the counsel

in the heat of seduction
I fell upon you hungrily
taking you passionately

the moment of our union flared
hot as lava
scorching as an August sun

I was swept away
as I consumed your charms
aflame with desire

tasting your forbidden fruit
in a wanton blaze
I took my fill

but just as quick it ended

I should have listened
they knew you all too well

alas, you burned me badly
and only left me crying

but I never will forget you

— habanero… or your chili soul

  1. The word “swoon” is a one word poem. Your poem reminded me of one I have that would work great for this prompt but I was trying to come up with something on the spot…and you know how HOT it is right now.

    Thank you!

    I’m glad it carried you rapt to the meet the “culprit” that caused my undoing.ร‚ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

    ‘Swoon’ would make a great one word poem.

    I just added the extra words to bring up the heat a little… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Thank you for visiting!

  4. Danielle

    I appreciate your kindness!

    Pictured is the focus of the poem’s passion — the habanero chili — considered one of the hottest, if not the hottest there is.

  5. Herb

    Thank you!

    Trust me, if you ever bite into a habanero chili, even once — you won’t forget the experience the rest of your life! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. Hi Rob!
    Thanks for the comment on my blog…

    Actually the restaurant is NOT Bombay Cricket Club, it is The India Oven on SE 39th & Hawthorne in that old Masonic Temple. My husband & I used to own a coffeehouse there right next door to them in that building so we ate there every day!

    Try The restaurant.. it is GREAT! They are from Punjab and the cuisine is awesome. Service? sometimes hot or miss but teh food… yummm!

    OK… sure, I know the one.

    Kathy and I will pop in and try it. I recommend you try ‘Got Curry’ 2818 Se Park Ave, Milwaukie, OR 97222. It is situated in a house, in which I believe the proprietors live.

    No worry on the typo’s… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    ….. ๐Ÿ™‚ — Glad you got a kick out of it!

    I thought about a warning, but then some folks wouldn’t read it — and I wanted to share a little mirth this weekend.

  9. Love the poem, it was tantilizing all the way through.
    To me a habenero is as dangerous as a broken heart – well
    at least both would make me cry!

  10. Michelle

    Thank you!

    Both will put tears in your eyes — and the habanero will peel the skin off the roof of your mouth! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    A little voyeurism might do us all some good. We’d probably discover we’re not as strange as we think we are — or wish we were… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Thank you for the continued kind words!

  12. Wonderful! I read Swoon first (loved it!) and as it’s 5:00am, the ending of this one caught me with a mouthful of hot coffee that had to be wiped from the screen! What a great twist at the end.

    I have a greenhouse full of these little orange beauties…want some more?

    Thanks for your kind comments and wonderful poems.

    Thank you for the very kind words!

    Glad to know this gave you a chuckle. It’s a devious little trickster I tried to write here. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  14. Jesi (m.o.M)

    Oh, and as for your offer of the habanero’s, thank you… but if I never see another, it will be too soon… ๐Ÿ˜‰ — however, my wife Kathleen (asbestos mouth) loves the damned things!!

    How the hell someone, as totally Irish as my wife, can eat such hellaciously hot food, blows my mind — and she only weighs 105 pounds… I’d think she’d spontaneously combust!

    Go figure?

  15. JanePoe (aka Deborah)

    I am pleased it was to you taste!

    Wow! I think you now own the record for the largest word currently anywhere on my blog… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  16. How delightfully clever! Capsaisin AND endorphins.
    [Thanks for your comments too. I’m sorta between the 40 year old and 60 year old, I think but time marches on and I still have alot of writing to do. Also my kids say I have a hard time just walking let alone dancing!]

  17. Rob รขโ‚ฌโ€ Spicy! Oh my, habanero! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’ll never look at that chili the same way again.

    Thank you for visiting my blog earlier. It’s been great to “meet” you. You are such a creative person! I’ve enjoyed seeing all that you have here on your blog. I’ll be back!

  18. Noni

    Glad you enjoyed!

    You’re welcome, and keep writing.

    My children (29 & 35) look at me and can’t imagine that I used to be a strutting and gyrating lead singer in a rock & roll band — and a pretty damned good dancer, in my day. Fankly, I have a difficult time envisioning it myself these days… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Glad I could add to your perspective of this ‘hot’ little chili.

    I enjoyed my visit, and thank you for your kind words!

    Please do visit again…

  20. Jen

    Thank you for stopping by!

    Of all my firsts, that habanero chili my wife goaded me into trying was my spiciest — and truly unforgettable… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  21. Gautami

    Glad you like… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I just ‘adopted’ my lion and don’t know quite what to do to get set up — I find I am confused regarding what is required.
