Invited 55

An invitation in a dream
smoky and alluring
heard with ears hungry
for affection
a spark catching in
the tinder of one heart
catching
spreading
roaring
until
heat-to-toe
the invited feels
awash in flame
afire with yearning
alive with the gift
of being
desired
just six words:
"Close the door and come here."

55

We said that to an ogre once and then we ate him. He was very tasty.
Of course you humans had something else in mind.

I haven't said that in a long time. Of course, now that we live alone who worries about doors.
Very creative bit of writing.
