Mar 2014
You move in like a rainstorm, lightning strikes
And thunder rolls, just close enough to touch
My blushing red heart swiftly ignites
With your cool hello and soft playful nudge

The sparks in your smile flicker and fly
Keep your eyes on me, whisper soft and slow
Our friendship flared up like flames against sky
You captivate me like a campfire glow

But if I get too close, will the flames hurt,
Or will it collapse into dust and ashes?
I only wanted warmth, not to be burned
By the fierce heat of fiery flashes

I still hold a flame, deep in my chest
With the burns that you left, along with regret.
