Eternal Flames Of Love

Like a flame our love burns on,

It waves, flickers, and licks away till dawn,

We have icy flames, and searing flames,

The heat radiates colorful rays,

I can feel our love when we touch,

Your touch is scorching, melting, and lush,

If your love will always be true,

Your flame will burn me through and through,

Our flame puts off a sweet smelling smoke,

As sweet as our love for each other,

This is not like your love for your brother,

Our flame will never disperse or fade away,

The flame will continue to play all day,

This is true love, and it will always stay,

Love is eternal, infinite, like a flame,

Our love ignites and our lust climbs higher,

You are the flint and I am the fire,

Our love will grow even after death,

It will grow stronger with every breath,

Is this an eternal flame of desire?

Touched upon my cheek, his fingers soft like silk

His tender lips against my neck, my skin as pale as milk

Pulled against his body, his warmth embraces me

I feel his heart beat gently, to go further I quietly plea

He whispers out my name, and softly strokes my hair

I delicately kiss his beautiful lips, feeling the love we share

Leading me to the bedroom, he holds me close and tight

And once therein, we gracefully, make heavenly love all night

The morning comes with silence, the sun plays upon his face

Cuddled close against him, my finger along his lips I trace

His beauty radiates like moonlight, soft against our sheets

The poetic charm of his gentle breath, nothing in the world competes

He opened up his eyes, and looked deeply into mine

His every touch upon my flesh, more intoxicating than wine

Smiling I then hugged him, and knew he was the one

He smiled in return and held me, making my blood as hot as the sun...

Here are Your Roses

Ugonna Wachuku   


I am back to you again.
I am here once again to
let you know my thoughts:


On moonlit roads to home
and yesterday, you walk
to the beat of my heart.
And I too walk to the
beat of your humane


On lush landscapes of new
love and hopeful life, you
plant rainbow colours on
clouds of my being.


Tomorrow, when soaring
eagles meet us on the
mountain top, you shall
lovingly ask me:


"Where are my roses?";
and I will gladly say:
Here are your roses,


Here are your roses

I love the line, "On moonlit roads to home and yesterday, you walk to the beat of my heart", ahhh, so romantic. Once again you have managed to gather my feelings and captivate them with your wonderful style of writing. I am so intriuged by your words and savor eveything about them. The stories they reveal give meaning to life and the essence of your soul. Thank you for sharing.

There is great human compassion expressed here. Anyone could be "beautiful one" and that leaves me to visualize this window to world of love in purist concept. Great writing.

You make the reader feel as though they are the one in the poem. I love the way you bring my heart and mind into your poetry, as though i could be on this path and journey enjoying life and love with you. You have such a beautiful way of expressing all that is around you and making me see it all so colorful and close to the heart. 

You are truly a man of many talents.
