FIRE

A flame

Dangerous yet alluring

sparked

extinguished

sparked again

Innocent it seems

how it bends with the wind

or is perfectly still

Harmless, it seems.

 

But it grows if you let it

won’t stay a flame

It’s a fire

warm and ablaze

A light in the dark

Crackling..

Innocently crackling                                                                                                                  

Who can say it’s too warm?

Who can say it’s too bright? 

 

It pulls you in

How good it feels..

Basked in its light

alive you feel.

 

Maybe it’s too late

But how can it be?

It’s too beautiful , too precious

you think

 

You think

till you’re engulfed by that fire

enveloped in its flames..                                                                                                                  

Too warm now                                                                                                                                  

Too blindingly bright                                                                                                                      

The flames gnaw upon you                                                                                                            

and then you realize..                                                                                                                      

You are a prisoner                                                                                                                            

To the FIRE that’s DESIRE.
