Dearest Captivity

Dearest Captivity,

 

What is about you that is so enrapturing?

Is it the sparks? The flames? The way you blaze?

 

Are you a reminder?

Or perhaps...

A warning?

 

Somehow you spark memories

Of passed times

On cold nights when I laid awake

and stared into your comforting blaze

 

A dreaming daze

of reminiscent haze

All tangled in kindled flames

Never changing

Always the same

 

Yours truly,

H.T.
