The glow is so intense.
It captures all my attention and reflects all my thoughts, fears and emotions.
A mirror image of my growing insanity.
As I move closer it tempts me, taunts me and plays with me.
I can't help myself.
I know it will harm me and I will get burned, yet I cannot turn away.
My feet firmly planted, my hands balled into fists.
For a brief moment I pause, contemplating my situation.
I brush away the thoughts that fill my head with reason and rationality.
It's too late for all that, there is no going back and I proceed.
My course is clearly plotted, my choice is made.
It takes me, caresses me, makes love to me.
It burns me and I am gone.
