Poetry

Something Like Fire

She was something like fire

Beautiful to look at

Warm to be near

She drew you in

With her ever-present glow

The closer you got

The warmer life became

Until

She burned you

That’s the thing about fire

It never means to cause destruction

It is there for light

Warmth

Protection

But let it spread

And she will kill us all
