It flares up fast, love at first sight

Surrounding you with light,



The flame, with its hypnotic dance

fills the cold air with sweet fragrance


Encircled by comforting glow

Yet, by a dark shadow,



You cling hard to it, for it's dark,

The rain can make it spit and spark


If it drops, it will extinguish.

Oh Anguish!

Filling eyes with tears -


Billowing clouds of acrid smoke,

strangling your breath, making you choke.


All that you saw, clear, in your mind,

is gone,  You had sight.

Now you're blind.
