The Blaze Of You

November 2, 2017
the face of a man lit by glowing embers

The injustice of pouring all that you are

So lovingly into the molten veins of another

Who failed to mention they had no intention

Of escaping their own veiled destruction.


Steadily they devour your revelatory light

Until you come to realise you’re all but extinguished

And left at the core of the searing toxic flames

You unknowingly helped to ignite.


Enveloped by fumes you prayed would never overcome

The delicious heat that draws your bodies together

But now it scorches the fragments of your desiccated soul

And the precious alchemy you both created evaporates

With one last loving beat of your heart.
