a poem about love being like a burning , warming fire

i'm in love
and i'm standing still 
the flames are circling me 
red, orange , crimson and yellow
and i'm standing still 
the warmth is soothing me
even in my times of frozen fear 
when i become that ice cube 
and i turn bitterly numb 
the flames encase me 
making me feel , again 
as i start to melt 
i start to thaw 
i soften,  change shape 
the flames warming my icy skin 
and i feel everything 
the hands of the flames 
holding me still
the flickering of his orange hands 
against my cold and scared skin 
as they hold me , keep me still 
love me and let me breathe again 
and the dancing, laughing , and flickering flames 
of his lovely tender heart 
whenever he is near 
whenever he is here 
i am surrounded 
by the stirring dance of his circle of flames 
and oh,  my love, he never falters
he never ceases to keep me still 
in the tender , and laughing flames 
of the warming , gentle fire 
i  want to stay
