The Fire

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.

Finally... Finally...

It burns me and I am gone.


  1. This is excellent.

    How many times have I danced with the very same flame?

  2. Wow! Baby, you never cease to amaze me with your writing. Absolutely beautiful....

  3. Yes that is good. This piece has many meanings and truths. Well done.
