Fire

They tell you to go for the one that sets your heart on fire

To find the one who makes your soul ache with recognition and exhaustion all at once.

But sometimes the one who sets your heart on fire does so with words made out of gasoline and matches.

He takes a candle wick and wraps it around your neck and toes and lights it on fire with his matchstick tongue.

Sometimes the one who sets you on fire does so with his words and he leaves you crumpled in a pile of ash.

Sometimes the one who sets your soul aflame leaves you to be blown away by the whisper of the wind.
