ignition point

I ask you
where is the fire?
you say look around
it is in the air that surrounds you-
in the intimacy of two of us
we hold it in the palm of our joined hands.

when these words touch me
I feel a slow burn on my skin
knowing fire is not for away.

" I am burned before I reach the ignition point"

Thanks gautami. Not in disagreement with any others here, but all I might wish for if wishes I get is one simple thing - more please! Nice "feeling" within this poem. ~neil
