Why, if I am so drawn to the fire

Do I hurt so badly from the burn

The glow always pulls me close

The warmth sucks me into its path

Teasing me with promises of comfort

Making me crave its touch

Wanting so badly to feel the heat

To revel in the passion and ecstasy

Of a fire that burns into the very heart of me

Reaching inside to warm the places

That have been cold for way too long

But as I give in to the blaze

Walking open eyed into the furnace

I always come out singed, heart

And soul cracked and oozing

Burned black and fried to a crisp

Damn why am I so drawn to the fire

When I hurt so badly from the burns

Nice flow, tight piece and I am drawn to that same friggin' fire. Happy New Year Sue.

Love, Janet xoxoxo

re: save me from myself - perhaps because the need is always there,
the hope never dies...

Stay away from the fire from now on!
