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.
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.
