Fire is a short love poem. I wrote this poem a long time ago and was never fully aware of the meaning until now. When i first wrote this i had never actually been in love but it came from somewhere I cant explain. I realize now, being in love what it means. Hopefully readers can find meaning in it as well.

I was an old, warn down, termite infested tree

They had got to my core and slowly I started to hollow

With this i weakened, nothing left but my very minimum self

Still standing but barely alive


He came in a beautiful rush of life

Determined to fix me, with his best intentions and his whole heart

We thought he was reviving me


All this time with the passionate fire that burned in his eyes

It never occurred to me, that maybe my old dried up bark would catch fire

Infinitely, I would burn to the ground
