Lovers,
You and I,
For we alone knew the cost,
Of that terrible loneliness-
The price we paid,
Burned our souls so badly-
Incinerated the very fabric of our existence,
In such a way that,
We could never dare to open,
The charred remains for viewing again...

Then,
I hear my name borne on the wings
Of your desire-
And though I crave to reach out,
Feel your touch once more-
I feel my spirit withdraw in haste,
Fleeing the echo of your call...
Escaping the fire,
Yet desiring the flame...

I plunge into the nearest pool of ice-
Freezing you from my heart,
For everytime I draw too near-
I feel the glowing embers surge to life...

The sudden blast of heat,
Straining to sear my heart again,
Wish I could make you understand-
Being near you,
Means holding you at bay,
Else dear beloved,
I could never hope to stay...
