Passion's Flames

This poem is about a night of passion between two people who just happen to be married, but not to each other. They are both in relationships that leaves them feeling that something is missing. More specifically, it describes the heat of the moment and then the guilt left behind.

Passion's Flames
by Jeffrey Carter

A touch, soft and tender.
A whisper, full of desire
A gasp of sweet surrender
As passion fuels the fire

No words spoken between them
No promises to be kept
No lies being told tonight
No looking back - no regrets

Longing to hold each other
Such precious little time
Both vowed to another
Being lonely their only crime

Tomorrow bringing sorrow
A brief moment of shame
With the memory of this one night
A release from passion's flames
