Red Hot

by Molly Moore

19th June

Can you see me?

Lost in the darkness

A ghostly shape by the fire

Am I really here?

Reach out and touch me

Explore my flesh with touch

Do your fingers tingle?

Delve into my core

Feel the molten heat

Is this my fate?

As I wait for your return

To slowly fade away

When will you be here?

To make me whole again

Draw me back into the light

Can you feel it on your skin?

The fire burning through me

Disappearing me into the red heat!


Ps… This is one of a few pictures that I took for the post, Twisted Words. In the end I decided not to use it on that buycialisquality occasion and it has been sitting in my photograph file ever since. I took it using a long exposure setting and forgot to stay still long enough and so ended up with this rather ghostly image. It was a fluke but a rather cool one I think and has made me determined to play around with movement and long exposures again soon. As Sinful Sunday is all about the image, what better place to share it.

Yes, I see you

Not lost but waiting

The shape of our future


My hands on you

Tracing what is mine

My fingers caress

Thrusting deep within

To the fire in your core

To be mine forever

Safe until I return

To never fade away

I am coming soon

To make us whole again

Our love burnished bright

You feel me deep within

I am the flame to you

Rising from the heat

Ghostly good, madam.
And the words… you are truly a beautiful writer.

In photography, as it is with love, lust and life, the flukes make for some of the happiest surprises.
