Looking for a Fiery kind of Love...

"Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable." ~Bruce Lee

Steel And Velvet
He loved her as steel, he loved her as velvet
And in her heart, so closely she held it,
To make her complete, was his deepest desire,
To take her inside him, to bring her his fire

She loved him as snow; she loved him as rain,
To give him her warmth, to vanquish his pain,
To make him complete was her longing desire,
To take him inside her, to bring him her fire

They loved as with joy, they loved as a dance
So deeply in love… through the endless romance.

I stumbled across this poem because of the title.  Pretty awesome I think!   So does this kind of 'HOT' Love  and romantic friendship really exist?   I still want to believe it does...   
Have any of you found it yet?


  1. That's an interesting poem to go with your blog! Cool that you found it! In our times we tend to rely so much on our 'feelings' about love, especially if we have those 'romantic' feelings do we feel that the love is real. A willingness to bless the other person until the end of time, is much more my picture of loving someone. It's an action. May the Lord bless you with HIS LOVE -

  2. That is a Perfect description... "a willingness to bless the other person until the end of time." I will remember that! Thank you, Karin!!

  3. Maybe not that intense, but that's how i feel about my wife.

  4. I sure like to think it does. I think the key is to accept that every day there isn't going to be 'fire and heat' in a long term relationship. Sometimes it really is that 'comfortable slipper' feeling. But if you can find that spark every now and then it reminds you that you and he still have a sizzle! At times my hubby still makes my heart go pitter pat.

    Happy Week!

  5. :) i don't know.. not sure... these are more of concepts.. in real life lot of other variables impact the sanctity of that feeling.. me for one, do not seem to be lucky with love .. so no comments :)
