You were a Leo
A fire sign,
And I,
A Scorpio
A water sign,
Together we made steam

Over time,
I trusted you
More and more
And I let you
Move closer and closer
Before I put you out

Until one day
I let you too far in
And I caught fire

I remember it so clearly
It was a cold, winter night
And I could see your eyes flicker with desire
When I asked you to warm me up

You started with a gentle spark against my lips,
Then you moved all across my body
And ignited a fire
That grew faster
Than was comfortable with,
But I was so in love with you
That I ignored the voices screaming in my head,
And I let you spread
All through
And into me

And even though it hurt
I put on the face I thought you wanted
And added fuel to your desire

But once you saw me
Conquered and consumed
With your essence,
You left,
And never returned

It took me forever to put you out
Because you burned me
And I have scars deeper
Than any emotion you ever felt for me

Even though I’ve tried and tried,
I can’t let anyone else in
Because when they so much as touch me,
I flinch with your memory
And I feel my body combust

They say water beats fire
But I know
That’s not true
Because you beat me
And I’ll never be the same again
