Momentary Flame

I have searched for
the fire fantasy
of a heart set ablaze,
for that singular moment of bliss
when we kissed,
you touched my skin,
I've searched for it, my entire life...
it was discovered, though, now, unattainable....
For even the momentary flame, 
I am grateful.
If it is the only time
I will feel it,
I could sustain
in my loneliness,
even with just the memory
of your delicious flame,
I will find a small, dark pleasure to know, dear, 
that when you touch her,
it will be my lips
you are longing for.
