You burn like a wildfire Roaring through the night
Destroying all that is in your path and giving them new life
Your existence, as if it's blood pulsing with heat staining everything you touch
You, sweet like fresh strawberries
and yet laced with elegance like a glass of aged, red wine
Or perhaps you are a rose Alluring, enticing
yet guarded with thorns against the most worthy of men
Perhaps the sun, too?
The brightest star fiery, blinding and perpetual
Blessing life with its kiss Until they get too close.
And I, the moon
with its cracked surfaces and flaws sit quietly in the cold night
reflecting an eerie dimness onto roofs over sleeping souls
I am the ocean
Bringing a sense of calmness as my waves hit the shore
but dare not to venture too deep - my darkness may drown you
Or I, perhaps a sapphire
embedded in a rock chipped away slowly revealing my true glow.
And somehow, with a turn of events, Blue meets red on a palette
The colours seep into each other
A stream finds its way into new territory like an arm reaching into oblivion
Hesitantly, the colours circle around each other and then,
all at once into a beautiful violet
My tides meet your lava, devouring one another
Steam scalds the air Sizzling, as we reach an equilibrium
as you call my name gasping for air in pain and ecstasy
as you surrender yourself with my hands around your neck.
Let me savour your heat
Let me keep you afloat
Let me add light to your darknest dawns
As you consume me with your fire little by little, bit by bit.
