Vigorous Flame

 

From dust we become, to dust we return

on this vicious cycle of love

Will I forever be burned?

Can I, infact call it love
when love itself has no aim for destruction?

Fear resides behind the very idea of this spontaneous combustion

Then again, I ask

What is love without it’s soaring, vigorous flames?

two souls intertwining, breaking the frame

No boundaries aliasing in the name of time and space

But it is to love in which I am afraid to face

Perhaps I drew too close to the heat, never quite found that fiery beat

Either way, were the flames meant to defeat? 

From dust we become, to dust we return.

I pray this time that the wind carries me to a flame that will not burn.
