Flickering flames,
Elemental spirit,
Beautiful yet untamed
I bask in the warmth of your light
Your motherly love generous and unrestrained
With every child like curiosity,
I am drawn near
Wild eyed and adventurous
In Uninhibited fear
I am choked by your toxic fumes
By your heat I'm consumed
To get too close, dare I?
I am hopelessly doomed
Yet with every flicker
Of your ****** dance
I am drawn into you through a hypnotic trance
We turn and we turn
We burn and we burn
Until out of control
Loves inferno unfolds
Like a raging wildfire
Hot passions spread
Consuming every fiber
Of human resistant thread
Until like two small dying
Embers of light
In each others arms
We reach a climactic height
Two flames weak and exhausted
Extinguished by the night
Flickering flame,
Elemental spirit,
Beautiful yet untamed
Fire is your name.
