This

For would his kiss
quench or fan
the flame?
And which of the two
might be better?
When passion
lights a darkened
room like this;
with the strike
of an unexpected
single match,
and there my lover’s
eyes so dimly lit
would soothe, this;
my tempestuous soul.
Then “both!” I’d say,
would I, for him,
both drown
and burn in ecstasy!
that in this lifetime
I have yet not known.
