When I’m not with you I can only think of you
and it is not enough. I can think and think and think
but only in the same cliches; Long light hair, soft milky skin,
or a youthful, carefree smile. I have to look deeper
because you’re more than these. Look past
a beautiful exterior to see your fire,
smouldering hotly beneath. If I try it works and
your flames ignite in my mind.
They start to sway, drawing close to me,
whipping my imagination but doing no harm.
Your image is immersed in them; unscathed;
immensely radiated. Melding fires
move seductively towards me, teasing,
pulling in and then away. Your perfume curls
sublimely in the air, making me heady; intoxicating.
Your conception is searing, but just enough
not to look away. It is a bright fiery light flowing
from within you. Comforting, threatening,
golden and luminous. You flash an earnest smile
full of delight and bad intentions.
Your blue crystal eyes smoulder a thousand degrees
cutting right into me, but not as deep as your
vulcan barbs. I have no reply. I am disarmed.
Breathless. At times I feel I cannot endure.
Grasping you tighter and tighter
I want to be inside your flames. To know you.
To be engulfed, immersed, and happy.
But as you said that you do not know me,
I do not know you. I can feel your warmth,
but your flames are too hot to touch.
I stand before your bright light, and take
a step away, ready to try your blistering heat
yet tentative still. This fire could consume me,
but I could be your fuel, uniting with you
to flare brighter still. Staring into your dancing,
tendrils of orange, red, and gold, questions of if
become irrelevant. You’re hypnotic. Magnetic.
All there is to do is to step into your fire,
and willingly take the chance of destruction.
