The colors mesmerize
They dance across your face
Flames conduct a jazz recital
My heartbeat meets their pace
Your eyes gaze at me
With a hunger that feeds
You touch with your thoughts
Fulfilling all needs
Wrap me in your warmth
With soul, body, and mind
Touch my lips so gently
To taste the sweet, sweet wine

Lauren, a mesmerising poem and I’m glad you chose to revise and share it here! From the ordinary of a fireplace, you quickly captivate the reader with the incredible love and closeness between the two! Just wonderful and I particularly love the line ‘Flames conduct a jazz recital’ – a terrific image! Keeping sharing your poetry, please!!😀

Something about a cold night, a warm fire in the home and the presence of one you love sitting beside you isn’t there? You expressed it well.
