Playing With Fire

 

 

I'd love to say I didn't see it coming,

..

But I'm a bit more dangerous than that.

Perhaps it was fun,

or maybe it was merely the curiosity pulsing through me...

 

but it it was like me.

I am a flame,

a flickering light,

keeping myself bright from the night.

My dear,

isnt that why you don't dare come near me?

 

i saw an opportunity.

one to show that I am bright enough to survive.

For I've set the world around me on fire,

but I swear if you ever mean something to me,

I won't let the flames lick your life, 

and turn your dreams to ash.

i will protect you,

for I feel very quiver of the flames' beating heart,

and it will not hurt you.

 

But if you come to destroy me,

do not tread easily among me...

 

But please know, I am only looking for help.

i want only to find my twin flame,

and finally

belong.
