The Heat of Desire

Desire is a blaze

I’m afraid to touch

I’m drawn to the heat

knowing it burns.

Seduced by the flame

as it’s dance draws me in

it brings light back to my eyes.

How quickly I forget it lacks control.

It seems so warm and inviting

this pyrotechnic light

want so badly to touch it

appreciate it’s uncertainty

as I lean in just a tad,

not too close as to get burned

just enough

to experience the heat.
