Like Fire

When I made you smile, I felt something.

Like fire.

When you spoke those words, my cheeks burned.

Like fire.

When you took my hand nervously, it kindled me.

Like fire.

When you broke down in my arms, you melted me.

Like fire.

When you let me see your scars, I gave you warmth.

Like fire.

When you kissed me, you set me aglow.

Like fire.

But when that day came, my anger burned.

Like fire.

When she took my place, temper sparked,

Like fire.

With a word, you laid waste to my world.

Like fire.

Now, absolved and done, I've died down.

Just like fire.
