poem #2: love loss

i can't quite remember
the residual heat
from extinguished embers
the smoky reminder
ashen chips
from a once raging fire
reflecting light
...water rolling off me
a surface unchanged
until bluntly cracked
or under pressure
i remember nothing
of passions engulfing
wild and reckless
just caution,
a flame-less candle danger of growing
no danger of losing control heart is absent
of the feeling
that stirs beneath the breast
and gives life to bated breaths
and boils up
like water
touching lava
causing seas unrest...
...i have not selected
not to recollect
i want nothing more
than for my heart to crackle
with erratic blaze
and give spring to my step
balm to my face
and love in my heart... just seems that,
i'm to be abject to this memory loss...
love's memory loss
