Giddy with anticipation, I sprint
towards the waiting fuse

The hiss of the match
lights our spark that smoulders
with an intensity that
scorches my skin

It's started.

We shoot into the sky
you're in pursuit of me
as we race towards the high


Beauty blurs to pleasure
as colours burst behind closed eyelids
Violet, gold, scarlet, azure
They dance as screams and moans
are ripped from us as your
body and mine intertwine

Even through the blissful haze
our time together burns a trail
that even now, I can't erase
In retrospect, love cloaked in lust
was branding her mark on our every day
But we were caught in unawares, as
we succumbed to our firework display
