Definition of PASSION...

Strong feeling or emotion
heat: the trait of being intensely emotional
rage: something that is desired intensely; "his rage is lust filled with passion"
mania: an irrational but irresistible motive for a belief or action…feeling of strong sexual desire
love: any object of warm affection or devotion;

Passion is the taste of the sun on my bare flesh, the kiss of the moon repeatedly nurturing us with evening bliss...

Passion is my daughter's smile, the pitter-patter of laughter she rings in my ears

Passion is the feeling of fingers when I write on my journal
when I create new words of love, life, hope and happiness

Most of all passion poetically speaks to me every day
the love of writing
the path of self-expression that becomes edible
the colors I create with brushstrokes
while texture remains silky on my mental state

Passion is what I seek daily. What is your passion?


He is a banquet for the eyes
A quiet spirit
She swallows hard his words
Yet each sentence is understood
She assumes he wants her to slow down
the process
Of knowing…
Knowing him as a black man who’s crossed the peaked dessert of life
Too many times
She inhales his thoughts
Digest impatience that grows like weed in her belly
She wants to love him like never ending fire
He has bewitched her repeatedly in her dreams
Don’t ask why she fears his distance
His presence is powerful enough to praise
She waits for him to set her free
With just
One touch

Passion. Hmm what a strong word. A word that stands by itself. So many meanings....

Passion for me is many things. My passion for writing pushes my thoughts, emotions on paper to share with others. To have touched someone with my words brings me great joy.

Passion to raise my son the right way. It pushes me to be a good mom, someone that can guide him on his journey until he no longer needs me.

Passion for the man that I love. Whoever that may be. The passion felt between two individuals that love each other, is the greatest emotion felt.

I love this word. I'm passionate about this word. It describes ME. A passionate woman of love, life & everything in between.


If I had a dollar for each time this happened I'd be rich...

Soldier said...

Passion is a double-edged sword...

It's drive, it's energy, it's love...

it's smoky, it's confusing, it's hate...

it's pleasure AND pain...

Passion is heavenly and dangerous

My passion is life... discovering, living, experiencing, trying, tasting, asking, learning... sometimes i just stop whatever i'm doing and think " damn i'm alive " and just cancel the rest of my day to go sit in a park with a box of Ben & Jerry's Rocky road... :-)

Lyrically speaking said...

Soldier: Oooooooh, I like your comment about passion...thanks, love it!
