HOW LONG WILL YOU LET ME – BURN?

By Charles Robert Lindholm

How long will you let me – Burn?
in the fire you started
with your look
with your kiss
with your touch

When will you come
and Quench
the fire in my temple?

When will you let your
love flow all over me
and give me the relief
and the release from
the aching and pain
of the fire in my heart
and the fire in my soul
that you let – burn?

When will you quench
the fire you set in me? 

When will you be
will you ever be

Mine?
