Okay, better late than never, right? I've had kind of a crazy weekend, so I'm turning the Saturday Centus into a Monday one. Hope Jenny doesn't mind! This time around we get to use 100 words plus the prompt, in red. The couple in this poem are soon to be wed, and they are enjoying a blazing romance... ;)

Baby, your love is hot, hot, hot.
My heart’s a forest fire.
You’re so incendiary that
I’m burning with desire.

Your flame licks deep inside my soul
with tongues of torrid heat.
Your kisses crackle, snap, and pop.
They make my life complete.

You sizzle when I touch you, and
your handprint scorches me.
Spontaneous combustion is
a possibility.

That’s why I think it’s safer if
we change our wedding venue.
Baked Alaska, fine; baked wedding guest?
Not on our menu!

If the wedding was at the firehouse,
we’d all be safe, no doubt.
But is it worth it? Geez, what if
they put our wildfire out?

You should find someone to write the music to go with your lyrics. That would be a great song!~Ames

Grandma Honey said...

I really like this one! And when the music came on I laughed. Perfect!

Grandma Honey said...

I'm really do you find such good songs to match? Do you just think them up yourself?

How cute. Baked Alaskan is better than cooked guests any day:)

It’s a Wrap Link Party at Artful Rising

Oh yeah, I can tell by the sound of your music too, that your wildfire - love is just way too hot to ever be put out!

Who ARE these people? Oh yeah, they're just getting married. Now I understand! :) fun poem.

Darlene said...

So clever, positively witty! How I did enjoy reading this little ditty. Your take on it was absolutely inspiring. That you can keep on doing these centus things so well each and every week is something I will never be able to understand, but hey, I'm glad you can as you do entertain a whole lot of people. More power to you!!!
