Sometimes you hear something which completely stops you in your tracks. I actually pulled over and stopped the car the first time I heard it.
This piece of music/poetry has haunted me for a few weeks. It is by Kate Tempest, one of the UK’s most breathtaking and genre breaking poets.
It is a gorgeously romantic and sensual piece.
It has touched me deeply.
I will say no more. I will simply leave you to listen.

My visionary is a vision I watch her dancing by the window And it rips my flesh to ribbons And the whole world is just ripples In the middle distance I listen to her hips I push my kisses to her lips We move like we were born to move The night is teeth and pistons And there is something in this tenderness that makes me want to live Firesmoke Her mouth sets free this captive Come close to me Free me Let me untangle the madness that knots you I drop to my knees and crawl across you I tell you I’ve got you It’s firesmoke So go on, give me three days of your body and mine Time is a blind eye and I see your mind in my mind’s eye You make me immortal You take me to space You are a planet A place I’ve not known Your body is home to rare gods I kneel at their temple I’m blown to bits, gentle, ferocious We are open Explosives have nothing compared to these sparks So let’s fall apart And then lie with me, breathing in the den of the dark It’s firesmoke Your mouth sets free this captive come close to me Free me Untangle the madness that knots me You drop to your knees, you crawl across me You lick your lips softly, it’s firesmoke The fire rises between us And makes us get on the wrong trains Walk the wrong way Make strangers smile greetings on Lewisham way I bathe in this fire It warms without burning Compels without force And it turns without turning the world So please, you keep your purpose Your poise and your journey I’ll be by the fire Thinking, nothing I’ve learned can prepare me For everything else that needs learning Is this how it feels to feel certain? Coz for so many years my love’s been a burden But now comes this fire to cleanse and restore us to fuel us and calm us and push us both forwards Source: https://songtexte.co/en/kate-tempest-firesmoke-lyrics-e36b52
