Returning to the Fire

Returning to the fire

Afraid to burn

Hungry for warmth

Accustomed to the cold

— I took my first step, more cautious then my leaps of yesteryear

— I lean first, sniffing at the ash

— — What burns now in my metaphor?

— — — The hearts of many?

— — — Do we gather light and comfort from their destruction?

— — — Is that the nature of Love?

— — — To sit smiling at the chaos?

— — — Yes are my answers

What comes next is pain and pleasure
