Your words warm my skin
your fingers strike my soul
as you would a match,

you light up the darkest corners of my mind
like how the breaking sunrise sets the sky on fire
my starless midnight turnedΒ to a blazing wildfire dawn
as I lay there looking up at you
IΒ Β realize to love you,
is to burn

if you are a wildfire,
then I am the sunken, hollow trees
welcoming the wildfire that is moving swiftly,
and dauntlessly through my raw heart

as you raged through me,
you burned a path

the air I breathed that was once dry,
is now entwined with the aroma of you
my mind once tangled by roots
is adorned by the gold hues
of the sunlight that now reaches me

you planted compassion in my veins
you sprouted warmth in my bones
you grew flowers in my soul
a wildfire burns to make room for new life to grow
you breathed life back into my tired soul
