Fire

You were fire. It was warm and cosy in your arms. Your licks brought heat and a rosy glow to my skin. You were fire: a guiding light – safety for my broken soul. You were fire. Dangerous. Destroying everything in your way. You were fire. Burning me with every touch, until I hid behind my highest walls. You were fire. Raging in my fragile dreams. You were fire. And everything turned to ashes and dust. Your fire went out for me. I turned into an ember, buried under the debris of our love. I missed your light. I missed your heat. I missed you so. But I needed to let you go. I saw your fire blazing from afar. Your fire found someone new. Pain and tears made it hard to be my own light again. You were fire. I am dust. And I am supposed to rise above the ocean… But not yet… Not yet. Soon.
